Abstract
It was shown that there exist two sources of errors in an adaptive optics system. The first source appears due to limitations induced by the elements of the system such as a Shack Hartmann sensor and deformable mirror. The second associated with the violation of the optical reciprocity principle in algorithm of phase conjugation, namely, with substitute of beacon amplitude distribution by distribution of a Gaussian beam generated by a laser. Absolute correction of turbulent aberration is possible only in case of strict maintenance of a principle, i.e. in case of phase reversal. In the paper the possibility is considered to realize phase reversal in a linear system and only with the use of phase control of the beam. The system should include two mirrors separated by the vacuum gap of a finite size. Estimations were obtained by correction efficiency on the base of phase conjugation and with the use of two mirror adaptive system.
