The performance of corner-cube arrays as pseudophase-conjugation wavefront correctors is investigated theoretically and experimentally. Hollow electroformed arrays and solid plastic arrays of corner-cube retroreflectors have been optically characterized and studied in a pseudophase-conjugate imaging system. The use of a collimating lens is found to improve dramatically the image quality.
