Abstract
During recent years, the number and capabilities of adaptive optics systems increased considerably. Meanwhile, this observing technique has been extensively applied in various fields of astronomical research. The obtained result are numerous and illustrate impressively the stunning potential of this method which offers diffraction-limited angular resolution for ground -based telescopes. The present review summarizes the latest achievements concerning the scientific results obtained with adaptive optics.
