Abstract

The theory of distortion correction by phase conjugation, developed since the discovery of this phenomenon many years ago, applies to situations when the field that is conjugated is monochromatic and the medium with which it interacts is deterministic. In this Letter a generalization of the theory is presented that applies to phase conjugation of partially coherent waves interacting with either deterministic or random weakly scattering nonabsorbing media.

  9. The effects of partial coherence on phase conjugation were recently discussed in X. Yi P. Yeh, Opt. Commun. 147, 126 (1998). The investigations in that paper, however, concern specific effects caused by the temporal coherence of the incident beam, not the spectral degree of coherence, which we are concerned with.
