Paper Abstract

Enhancement of the multiple-beam point spread function (PSF) is observed for the phase-conjugate return of a reference signal, when a scheme is implemented to counteract depolarizing effects. The effective performance of synthetic aperture systems requires the coherent interaction of incident electromagnetic fields. Once measures are taken to improve this interaction, far-field performance in the laboratory is enhanced as predicted by standard propagation code, i.e., Optical Analysis Software for Interactive Systems (OASIS).
