Paper Abstract

We report on the use of a new joint phase diverse speckle code, an implementation of a method where a single object and individual phases are estimated from several pairs of phase diverse data. The code was used on 430.5 nm G-band data collected with the newly installed Swedish 1-meter solar telescope in La Palma, equipped with a low-order adaptive optics system. We describe the algorithm briefly, show wavefront statistics and object estimates from the processing and discuss the results. We demonstrate a resolution of 0.12 arc seconds for a time sequence and a large field of view, which is a break-through for ground based solar telescopes.
