Diffraction-limited imaging with large and moderate telescopes

Author: Swapan K Saha
Publisher: Singapore ; Hackensack, NJ : World Scientific, ©2007.
Edition/Format:   Print book : Document   Computer File : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
"This book deals with the fundamentals of wave optics, polarization, interference, diffraction, imaging, and the origin, properties, and optical effects of turbulence in the Earth's atmosphere. Techniques developed during the last few decades to overcome atmospheric image degradation (including passive methods, speckle inferometry in particular, and active methods such as adaptive optics), are highlighted.
