17 October 1997 Deconvolution of adaptive optics images using object autocorrelation and positivity
Author Affiliations +
Adaptive Optics systems provide a real time compensation for atmospheric turbulence, which severely limits the resolution of large telescopes. However, the correction is often only partial and a deconvolution is required to reach the telescope diffraction limit. The need for a regularized deconvolution is discussed, and a Maximum A Posteriori based deconvolution technique is presented. This technique incorporates a positivity constraint and the knowledge of the object Power Spectral Density. This method is then extended to the case of an unknown PSF. Deconvolution results are presented for both simulated and experimental data.
