Paper Abstract

The gains of an isoplanatic patch, both in diameter and in area, are presently derived for a Multiconjugate Adaptive Optics system through comparison with a conventional system for height-dependent refractive index structure coefficient. By treating the atmosphere as an N-layer model and keeping the isoplanatic patch size invariable for all layers, the patch gain is obtained.
