Abstract

Optical aberrations that are due to high-speed turbulence in the aero-optical regime are corrected with optical phase conjugation based on coherent population trapping in sodium vapor. Experimental measurements of an unheated, forced helium jet in air have demonstrated aberration correction by a factor of 7.8 at a forcing frequency of 18 kHz with an optical power gain of 32.
