Abstract
Combining double—phase conjugation with various coherent amplifiers leads to an amplified beam (forward or conjugated) derived from a local laser, but bearing the transversal phase pattern of a received signal beam from a remote laser. We suggest several uses in optical communication through a distorting atmosphere.
