Paper Abstract

The influence of diffraction on the object, coherently illuminated and viewed through a random medium from the same point, on the image quality betterment caused by the counter wave correlation is studied experimentally. The measurements were carried out with the use of setup modeling artificial convective turbulence. It is shown that in the case of spatially limited reflector with the Fresnel number of the reflector surface radius r ranging from 3 to 12 the contribution of the counter wave correlation into image intensity distribution is maximal as compared with the point objects (r U.
