    Principles of adaptive optics. [Robert K Tyson] -- Adaptive optics has progressed from the laboratory and field experiments into surveillance systems, optical testing, medical research, and astronomical observatories around the world. With hundreds of references, this book provides a road map to the design and performance analysis of. Adaptive Optics Adaptive optics is a technological development used for optical system performance improvement. It works by reducing the effect of wavefront distortions. Light from a distant celestial object gets distorted as it passes through earth's atmosphere, thus a telescope located on earth's surface cannot form accurate images.

This is critical in achieving the maximum S/N given in equation (1).The basic idea of AO is to first measure the amount of atmospheric disturbance, then correct for it before the light reaches the camera. This book by one of the leaders in adaptive optics covers the fundamental theory and then describes in detail how this technology can be applied to large ground-based telescopes to compensate for the effects of atmospheric turbulence.
