Abstract

Adaptive optics systems allow us to retrieve high-spatial-frequency information that is preserved in the wave fronts distorted by the atmosphere. Although wave-front correction should be as complete as possible, only partial compensation is attainable in the visible. We provide a procedure that uses the Rician distribution to predict the intensity statistics of the light at the image center as a function of the number of corrected Zernike polynomials.
