Adaptive and Integral Optics


The quality of the adaptive correction for atmospheric distortions is estimated in a system where the wavelength of the main laser source differs from that of the beacon. The possibility is considered of the reconstruction of the three-dimensional refractive index profile in different cross sections of the propagation path while the beam parameters are recorded only on the target plane. An algorithm is described that provides for the improvement of the beam control effectiveness in a “two-color” system with the use of the obtained information.
