Paper Abstract

The problem of imaging the solar surface is considered. A theoretical study is presented that indicates that traditional adaptive optic techniques are of limited usefulness for solar imaging. A new method for adaptive optic image sharpening for extended sources is described. Results from numerical simulations show that this technique shows promise for image sharpening under conditions of moderately severe turbulence.
