Paper Abstract

Phase correction using deformable mirrors is being applied to improve the performance of optical imaging and laser systems. Karr derived a small signal algorithm for amplitude (or intensity) correction from a linear approximation of Rytov's equation. The idea developed a new application of deformable mirrors. In this paper, we describe another amplitude correction theory based on the paraxial wave equation. The results show an improvement over Karr's in some respects. We think the amplitude correction may be used in high power propagation in the atmosphere and laser inertial confinement fusion in the future.
