Abstract

We present results of numerical simulations of incomplete phase conjugation of a beam aberrated by a thin phase screen. We find good agreement with a previously developed theory for phase screens with Gaussian autocorrelation functions and investigate some regimes in which the theory is not valid. We show that when the phase conjugation is incomplete, introduction of an aberrator can lead to an improvement in the system resolution.
