We demonstrate one-way image compensation for a thin and polarization-sensitive aberrator by the use of optical lock-in detection. Optical lock-in detection is accomplished by dual-phase modulation in four-wave mixing in a holographic medium. In our scheme, both the image-bearing beam and the reference beam copropagate through the aberrator under the same polarization condition. The holographic grating that reconstructs only the corrected image was generated by selective recording in optical lock-in detection. The phase aberration is subtracted out in the holographic process. This scheme permits image correction through the polarization-sensitive aberrator.
