Abstract

We have reconstructed images after a single pass through a thick, turbulent aberrator. The reconstructed image's resolution was independent of the presence, severity, and length of a hot-air aberrator (at least 50 times the collecting optics' depth of field). The slowly responding four-wave mixing medium, fluorescein-doped boric acid glass, averaged out rapidly varying intensity apodizations, which would otherwise degrade the reconstructed image quality.
