Paper Abstract

After the aberrations of a collimated laser beam are stored in a hologram, the -1 order or conjugate wave can be directed back through the original aberration and will emerge as an unaberrated wave. We perform this type of aberration correction using a new type of PLZT (lead lanthanum zirconate titanate) as an instant storing holographic media. After a review of holographic aberration and storage of images in PLZT, we describe a laboratory experiment which proves this concept. Star tests and interferograms demonstrate the success of the experiment.
