A new interferometric instrument is described that measures time-varying distortions of the wavefronts of light propagating through the earth's atmosphere. Specifically, it is used to deter­ mine the phase structure function, an important indicator of the extent to which atmospheric turbulence degrades the resolution of telescopes and cameras and the… CONTINUE READING
