    Abstract This book by one of the leaders in adaptive optics covers the fundamental theory and then describes in detail how this technology can be applied to large ground-based telescopes to compensate for the effects of atmospheric turbulence.

It sells unclassified U.S. federal government reports.

      Clearing the View with Adaptive Optics. So, adaptive optics has been a lifesaver for ground-based telescopes in particular. It is not a brand-new technology. Some version has been around since the second half of the 20th century when it started in military applications. Then, the technology migrated to observatories. Adaptive optics systems and components have achieved a level of sophistication and simplicity that goes beyond traditional applications in astronomy and the military and into developments in medicine, manufacturing and communications. This book was written for those interested in the multidisciplinary technology and those who need a broad-brush explanation without wading through thousands of 4/5(1).

    Adaptive optics systems and components have achieved a level of sophistication and simplicity that goes beyond traditional applications in astronomy and the military and into developments in medicine, manufacturing, and communications.   “Adaptive optics” refers to a system in which the image being received through a telescope is analyzed in more-or-less real time for distortion caused by seeing, and an inverse distortion is applied to the telescope optics to remove or reduce the effect. This bit of magic is performed by something called a “wave-front corrector.”.

Adaptive optics is a way forward that avoids this dilemma. It works like this. Light from an astronomical object travels in straight lines through the vacuum of space so the wavefront, or set of waves that left the object at the same time, defines a flat as the light travels through the atmosphere, its speed depends slightly on density, and the turbulent motions of air in the upper.

It includes information on basic adaptive optics components and technology, and has chapters devoted to atmospheric turbulence, optical image structure, laser /5(2). It turns out that a reasonable fraction of the sky can be observed using adaptive optics, with moderately good imaging quality, provided imaging in done in the near IR.

To move out of the near IR, with its relatively poor angular resolution, astronomers need a laser guide star. For many astronomers, Adaptive Optics is something like a dream coming true.
