A real-time hologram generated in the liquid-crystal layer of a leaky-mirror silicon light valve is read by the same low-intensity beams used to record it. For a particular geometry, one of the diffracted beams propagating away from the device is the optical phase conjugate of one of the original beams, thus permitting correction of path-propagation aberrations. Experimental results show correction of tilt, focusing error, and random phase aberrations.
