Paper Abstract

We describe experimental investigations of the confocal microscopy method for imaging optically rough objects through turbulence. We have compared the potential of one- and two- lens illumination/receiving systems for the situations when illumination and viewing proceed through the same and different inhomogeneities of the medium respectively (double and independent passage geometries). Active imaging through independent inhomogeneities (two- lens geometry) gives a maximum factor (root)2 improvement (in comparison with passive imaging system) irrespectively of the turbulence properties.
