We analyze various scenarios of adaptive wave-front phase-aberration correction in optical-receiver-type systems when inhomogeneties of the wave propagation medium are either distributed along the propagation path or localized in a few thin layers remotely located from the receiver telescope pupil. Phase-aberration compensation is performed with closed-loop control architectures based on decoupled stochastic parallel gradient descent, stochastic parallel gradient descent, and phase conjugation control algorithms. Both receiver system aperture diffraction effects and the effect of wave-front corrector position on phase-aberration compensation efficiency are analyzed.
