Abstract

Wave fronts distorted by the atmosphere preserve high-spatial-frequency information. This information can be retrieved by use of adaptive optics systems to correct the incoming wave front. This correction should be as nearly complete as possible. In experiments performed in the visible, only partial compensation is attainable. We provide a theoretical model to predict the intensity statistics of the light in the image center as a function of the number of Zernike polynomials corrected.
