Atmospheric inhomogeneities significantly affect optical waves and restrict the efficiency of present-day optoelectronic systems. It is well-known that one of the most radical methods to diminish this effect is application of adaptive systems. A key element in the optical scheme of an adaptive system is a reference source. This paper concerns some aspects of application of laser reference sources connected with the coherence of their radiation.
