A hybrid method for image formation through inhomogeneous media is presented. This method embodies principles of superresolution by incoherent-to-coherent conversion and one-way phase conjugation. A general equation is derived for an arbitrary configuration embodying a synthesis of the two methods. A variety of specific configurations are evaluated. The effect of a double-pass aberration-correction method is achieved even though the object wave has made only a single pass through the inhomogeneity.
