Paper Abstract

Adaptive phase compensation through a Raman amplifier has been studied experimentally. Using a real-time wavefront sensor and a 69-actuator deformable mirror, the low-power Stokes seed to a Raman amplifier was phase compensated for simulated turbulence. After amplification, the beam was passed back through the simulated turbulence and its beam quality was determined. The results are consistent with determinations of amplifier fidelity and adaptive-optics performance.
