Abstract

An extension is presented of a recently developed theory (based on the first Born approximation) of cancellation of distortions by phase conjugation. The influence of backscattering of both the incident and the conjugate waves is considered. It is shown that, when backscattering is taken into account, distortions are not eliminated by phase conjugation, except when the conjugate wave is generated without a loss or a gain.

Equation (2.1) of this reference contains a misprint. U(2)(x, y, z)eiωt should be replaced by U(2)(x, y, z) e-ωt. Also, Eq. (1.8) should read A(u/k, v/k) = k2U(u, v; z)e-ωt. These corrections do not affect any other equations or conclusions of that paper.
