Paper Abstract

Adaptive phase compensation receivers have been proposed for improving the performance of line-of-sight atmospheric optical communication systems. In this Paper we examine the system requirements dictated by the coherence parameters of low-visibility wavefronts, and describe a class of all-optical (essentially wireless) systems that are being investigated for high resolution, real time, wavefront phase compensation. Preliminary results from a simpler, single-element, opto-electronic test system that demonstrates the feasibility of the all-optical concept, are also reported.
