Paper Abstract

Atmospheric turbulence data are of great scientific and applied importance. Turbulence characteristics are obtained with interferometric methods by measuring the value of the stellar light coherence passing through the turbulent atmosphere. With this aim interferometers with the Lloyd mirror are generally used. In astrophysics such methods are of great interest and are used to improve atmospheric seeing. The results achieved stimulate the improvement of interferometric equipment for atmospheric turbulence studying. In the paper a new two-mirror version of interferometer is described. The instrument is highly sensitive and has wider functional possibilities.
