Abstract

A method of one-way image transmission through a turbulent medium is presented using four-wave mixing in BSO crystal. In this method, a pointlike reflector is placed on the observation plane to return part of the incident wave, giving the instantaneous wave propagation function of the turbulent medium to the image transmission side. The returned wave together with the plane reference wave and the Fourier-transformed input image wave is impinged in BSO crystal to modulate the image wave by the phase-conjugate wave, so that transmission of the image with reduced turbulence effects is achieved. The principle and laboratory experimental results are given.
