Paper Abstract

For more than two decades Lincoln Laboratory has been a major participant in adaptive-optic research and has performed seminal experiments in atmospheric compensation, including the first thermal-blooming compensation of a high-energy laser, the first compensation of a laser beam propagating from ground to space, and the first compensation using a synthetic beacon. In this paper we briefly review more than 20 years of Lincoln Laboratory work in the field.
