Special Issue Information
Propagation of laser beams in atmosphere have wide applications in many fields, including astronomical observation, laser communication, optical remote sensing, and aerospace defense. Many inescapability factors, such as absorption and scattering of molecules, turbulence of atmosphere, and complex weather conditions will affect the beam propagation, result in the energy loss, beam spread, and distortions in its wavefront. To reduce the effect of atmosphere on beam propagation, optical communication, and detection of object, many methods and technology are emerging with the development of new detection technology and modulation of light in recent years.
To demonstrate the latest research results, the open-access journal Atmosphere is hosting a Special Issue, Control and Transform of Laser beams in Atmosphere. Original results from the related field to improve the application of laser beam in atmosphere are welcome. The topics include:
(1) Classical optics: the properties of laser in turbulence, such as the coherence, polarization, fluctuation of intensity and wavefront;
(2) Beam control and adaptive optics: the methods of beam control, such as now model and method of adaptive optics, beam clear, compensation of wavefront, compress of the fluctuation of the intensity;
(3) Free space optical communication and optical remote sensing: novel modulation method, high data rates (gigabits/sec), privacy (or low intercept probability), antijamming;
(4) Image processing: image process in complex environment, such as ultra-low light imaging and non-line-of-sight imaging, imaging under rain and fog weather condition;
(5) Machine vision: detection of target for long distance by machine vision, recognition, tracking and pointing of motion object.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Atmosphere is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
