Adaptive optics based simultaneous turbulence compensation of multiple orbital angular momentum beams An adaptive optics compensation approach for an oam multiplexed fso communication system is described, in which a gaussian beam is used to probe the turbulenceinduced wavefront distortions and derive the correction pattern for compensating the oam beams. Using this approach, we demonstrate simultaneous compensation of multiple oam beams each carrying a 100gbit/s data channel through emulated atmospheric turbulence. University Of Southern California
