An algebraic model for continuouswave thermalblooming effects
Abstract
This paper presents an algebraic model for continuouswave thermalblooming effects that is accurate enough to well represent a large waveoptics data base, simple enough to suggest some previously unnoticed universal relationships, and complete enough to allow variation of the many physical variables of interest in systems analysis exercises.
