Paper Abstract

We describe the uniform error algorithm of adaptive phase correction. This algorithm can be used for imaging of extended objects through turbulence. The description involves the fundamental statistical properties of the Zernike expansion of phase distortions on receiving aperture, while no other limitations (sensor noise, spatial resolution of phase corrector, etc.) are taken into account. An approach is also presented to the problem of approximation of the mutual structure function of phase of received light coming through turbulence. This approach enables us to substitute distributed turbulent layer by a small number of phase screens, statistically equivalent to the layer.
