  • Presents turbulence effects and correction techniques using a uniform mathematical notation - no more sorting through diverse notations in a multitude of papers
  • Provides full descriptions of techniques, hardware requirements, algorithms, and expected performance - getting you started on any imaging technique
  • Contains comprehensive background information and references - easing the way for beginners in the field
  • Includes many images that provide a visually appealing way to determine tradeoffs between imaging techniques - allowing quick and easy comparisons
  • Discusses simulation of turbulence effects - providing the ability to make your own assessment of performance under various conditions
  • Summary

    Learn how to overcome resolution limitations caused by atmospheric turbulence in Imaging Through Turbulence. This hands-on book thoroughly discusses the nature of turbulence effects on optical imaging systems, techniques used to overcome these effects, performance analysis methods, and representative examples of performance. Neatly pulling together widely scattered material, it covers Fourier and statistical optics, turbulence effects on imaging systems, simulation of turbulence effects and correction techniques, speckle imaging, adaptive optics, and hybrid imaging. Imaging Through Turbulence is written in tutorial style, logically guiding you through these essential topics. It helps you bring down to earth the complexities of coping with turbulence.
