Adaptive correction of distortions in a multichannel optical system
Results of modern investigations of multichannel laser systems are analyzed; sources of aberrations in such systems and the methods of their active and passive compensation are described. Simulation results of combined beam propagation are also presented; a possibility of long-range energy transfer in systems of such a type is considered. Effects of random phase incursions and atmospheric turbulence on beam parameters in the plane of observations are studied. The use of the multidither algorithm for correction of random phase distortions in multichannel systems is considered.
