Atmospheric Tomography in Adaptive Optics

Turbulent air motion in the Earth’ atmosphere causes index of refraction fluctuations. In atmospheric tomography one aims at reconstructing this atmospheric turbulence from light wavefronts of bright astronomical objects or laser beacons from several directions that are measured on the ground. Atmospheric tomography is needed in tomographic Adaptive Optics (AO) […]
