Paper Abstract

We discuss how novel arrangements of conventional (static/linear) optical elements can compensate for many classes of time-varying phase distortions in optical trains. Precision corner arrays, lens arrays, and K-mirror arrays are all applicable as pseudoconjugation elements in certain classes of problems. In some cases multipassing (four or more passes) of a distorting medium can offer improved performance. Although the compensation is more limited than that available from nonlinear optical phase conjugation (NOPC), problems associated with thresholds, pumps, and frequency translations are eliminated.
