Adaptive optics counteracts these effects. This technology, originally developed and applied in astronomy, has been increasingly applied to ophthalmics and microscopy. This book introduces the key concepts and technologies behind adaptive optics. The wide diversity of imaging methods used in biological imaging requires multiple approaches to. For over four decades there has been continuous progress in adaptive optics technology, theory, and systems development. Recently there also has been an explosion of applications of adaptive optics throughout the fields of communications and medicine in addition to its original uses in astronomy and beam propagation. This volume is a compilation of research and tutorials from a variety of Cited by: 1. Adaptive optics (AO) is a technique that removes the atmospheric disturbance and allows a telescope to achieve diffraction-limited imaging from the ground. This is critical in achieving the maximum S/N given in equation (1).The basic idea of AO is to first measure the amount of atmospheric disturbance, then correct for it before the light reaches the camera. 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 Books SPIE Proceedings Pentagon Reports Dissertations Research Papers Bibliographies Patents Tutorials: Adaptive Optics Books: This section lists the leading textbooks on adaptive optics and related topics, and several significant recent conference proceedings, linked to their respective product pages on This book brings together 11 original chapters related to adaptive optics, written by an international group of invited authors. Topics include atmospheric turbulence characterization, astronomy with large telescopes, image post-processing, high power laser distortion compensation, adaptive optics and the human eye, wavefront sensors, and Cited by: 6. This book is not just another book on adaptive optics. There are already many fine volumes. This volume is intended for students, researchers, and practicing engineers who want a "go to" book when the calculation was "needed yesterday" (by a customer who won't be paying for it until the next fiscal year). 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 includes information on basic adaptive optics components and technology, and has chapters devoted to atmospheric turbulence, optical image structure, laser /5(2).
Adaptive Optics for Biological Imaging brings together groundbreaking research on the use of adaptive optics for biological imaging. The book builds on prior work in astronomy and vision science. Featuring contributions by leaders in this emerging field, it takes an interdisciplinary approach that makes the subject accessible to nonspecialists who want to use adaptive optics techniques in Pages: 8. Adaptive Optics Introduction Adaptive Optics is absolutely essential for OWL, to concentrate the light for spectroscopy and imaging and to reach the diffraction limit on-axis or over an extended FoV. In this section we present a progressive implementation plan based on three generation of. "This book is a classic that is a must for any adaptive optics researcher, but written in a way that is approachable for even someone with a casual interest in the technology." ―Justin D. Mansell, PhD, MZA Associates Corporation and Active Optical Systems, LLC, Albuquerque, New Mexico, USAPrice Range: $ - $ Field Guide to Adaptive Optics There have been a number of books and thousands of papers published with descriptions and mathematical expressions regarding adaptive optics. The material in this Field Guide is a summary of the methods for determining the requirements of an adaptive optics system, the performance of the system, and requirements.
