Characterization of the sodium layer at Cerro Pachon, and impact on laser guide star performance
Detailed knowledge of the mesospheric sodium layer characteristics is crucial to estimate and optimize the performance of laser guide star (LGS) assisted adaptive optics (AO) systems. In this paper, we present an analysis of two sets of data on the mesospheric sodium layer. The first set comes from a laser experiment that was carried out at Cerro Tololo to monitor the abundance and altitude of the mesospheric sodium in 2001, during six runs covering a period of one year. These data are used to...[Show more]
