Abstract

We describe a pulsed phase conjugator system that projects a laser beam possessing a scene-dependent energy distribution. We expand upon the inherent properties of optical phase conjugation (OPC) to include not only corrections for phase aberrations but to provide targeted laser beam illumination of partially obscured objects. For instance, if incorporated into a foliage-penetrating lidar system, OPC could significantly enhance performance. We demonstrate this OPC beam projection concept experimentally.
