Results of measurements of the conductivity and electric field strength in the laser radiation propagation channel and near it are presented. An experimental setup and measurement scheme are described. The data have been obtained in the prebreakdown regime. The dependences of the laser-induced field strength on the laser radiation power and the optical characteristics of the propagation channel are investigated. The feasibility of ionization channel diagnostics using the electro-optical effects in the atmosphere is shown.
