15 April 1993 Potential capabilities of adaptive optical systems in the atmosphere
Author Affiliations +
We shall consider the compensation for thermal distortions of laser beams propagated through the atmosphere on horizontal and vertical paths. It is found that the critical power of the source can be increased about ten times when going over from horizontal to vertical paths. The efficiency of different adaptive correction algorithms, namely program correction, phase- conjugate, and amplitude-phase control, are studied.
