Author Affiliations +
In this paper we study the performance of an atmospheric imaging technique we referred to as digital adaptive optics. The technique consists in two major steps: (1) an optical sensor provides simultaneous measurements of the optical field wavefront phase and intensity distributions (complex field) in the system pupil, and (2) a digital processing approach is used to synthesize a compensated image from the complex field measurement. A numerical analysis of the system performance is provided for an anisoplanatic imaging scenario.
