Paper Abstract

In this paper we examine the effect of the addition of uncompensated jitter on adaptive optics performance by modeling the effects of diffraction, atmospheric turbulence, and jitter as Gaussian beam spread terms. The anisoplanatic effect of jitter is shown to be a necessary addition to this Gaussian beam spread model. We develop a simplified method for including the effect of the jitter induced angular anisoplanatism in the Gaussian beam spread model.
