The theoretical basis and the results of an experimental investigation, performed on an operating model of the adaptive system, of multicriterional algorithm for modal control of the phase of a light beam based on the first five Zernike polynomials and analysis of the first and second moments of the intensity distribution in the observation plane are presented. The wavefront corrector, based on an elastic continuous mirror, and an image recording device with a controllable viewing angle, both employed in the adaptive system, are described.
