Paper Abstract

It is shown that the phenomenon of correlation of opposing waves may lead to improvement of image quality of coherently illuminated objects in a turbulent atmosphere in the case of strong intensity fluctuations. The extent of this improvement depends on the relation between sizes of the output and receiving apertures. The betterment of visibility in a turbulent atmosphere becomes maximal in the case of their proximity and vanishes if the sizes of illuminating and receiving apertures are distinguished from each other significantly.
