Paper Abstract

We will discuss how novel arrangements of conventional static/linear optical elements can compensate for many classes of time varying distortion in a high power optical train. Precision corner arrays, lens arrays and K mirror arrays are all applicable as pseudo conjugation elements in certain classes of problems. In some cases multipassing (four or more passes) of a distorting medium can offer improved performance. Although the compensation is more limited than available from nonlinear phase compensation, problems with thresholds, pumps and frequency translations are eliminated.
