Abstract
The wavefront compensation effect of micro corner-cube-reflector arrays (MCCRAs) in modulating retroreflector (MRR) free-space optical (FSO) link is investigated theoretically and experimentally. Triangular aperture of MCCRAs has been optically characterized and studied in an indoor atmospheric turbulence channel. The use of the MCCRAs instead of a single corner-cube reflector (CCR) as the reflective device is found to improve dramatically the quality of the reflected beam spot. We draw a conclusion that the MCCRAs can in principle yield a powerful wavefront compensation in MRR FSO communication links.
