Description

At present, the principal limitation on the resolution and contrast of astronomical imaging instruments comes from aberrations in the optical path, which may be imposed by the Earth's turbulent atmosphere or by variations in the alignment and shape of the telescope optics. These errors can be corrected physically,with active and adaptive optics, and in post-processing of the resulting image.Arecently developed adaptive optics post-processing technique, called kernelphase interferometry, uses...[Show more]
