Abstract

The mutual coherence function (MCF) of the complex amplitude of stellar light waves perturbed by atmospheric turbulence has been determined interferometrically. Results are in good agreement with horizontal laser-beam determinations. Stellar measurements provide quantitative estimations of seeing conditions for astronomical observations.
