Paper Abstract

The effectiveness of phase correction of high-power radiation propagating on a vertical path in the atmosphere, for which phase distortions are concentrated near the radiating aperture, have been investigated by means of modeling. The possibilities of modal and segmented correctors have been studied. This paper some factors such as the intensity profile of the initial beam, the number of degrees of freedom of modal and zonal correctors, as well as some variants of the simultaneous effect of these factors are investigated. A phenomenon of the wavefront dislocations of the optical irradiance propagating through the turbulent atmosphere and for the thermal blooming of a high-power beam is considered.
