Paper Abstract

We consider the compensation for thermal distortions of laser beams propagated through the atmosphere on horizontal and vertical paths. It is found that the critical power of the source can be increased about ten times when going from horizontal to vertical paths. The efficiency of different adaptive correction algorithms--namely, program correction, phase-conjugate, and amplitude-phase control--are studied.
