Previous experimental measurements and theoretical modelling indicate that atmospheric turbulence is expected to show intermittency (or "clumpiness"). The impact that this intermittency has on simulated adaptive optics (AO) and Lucky Imaging (LI) performance is assessed in this SPIE contribution using simulated phase screens with Von Karman power spectra which incorporate turbulent intermittency. The statistics of the intermittency model used are based as closely as possible on astronomical… Expand
Simulation of Atmospheric WaveFronts with Turbulence Intermittency
A new extendable method for the simulation of atmospheric wave-fronts with turbulence intermittency is reported. The purpose is to generate simulations consistent with the distributions observed forExpand

Anisoplanatism across wide fields at high-frame rates
In this paper we present a preliminary analysis of variation in the isoplanatic patch size over short timescales and wide angular separations. We tested a visible band photon counting camera runningExpand
Quantum hyperdense coding
We present a method, known as hyperdense coding, which uses photons hyperentangled in polarization and temporal mode to transmit up to 2.81 bits/photon of classical information over a two-qubitExpand

Atmospheric phase measurements with the Mark III stellar interferometer.
TLDR
The effect of phase fluctuations on astrometric accuracy is reviewed, and phase measurements obtained with the instrument at Mt. Wilson using a 12-m base line are presented, and these measurements agree well with the predictions of a simple Kolmogorov spatial spectrum over the frequency range of 0.001-100 Hz. Expand
Simulation of time-evolving speckle patterns using Kolmogorov statistics
We present a new approach for simulating time-evolving speckle patterns, by combining the shift of a rigid phase screen with its evolution . Thus, the two time-scales associated with speckle boilingExpand
Interferometric seeing measurements on Mt. Wilson: power spectra and outer scales.
TLDR
It is concluded that power spectra from a single interferometer baseline are a poor diagnostic for the effective outer scale compared with multiple-baseline spectra. Expand

Results of 3-month continuous monitoring of turbulence profile and seeing at Cerro Tololo (Chile) in May-July 2002 are presented. Some 28000 low-resolution profiles were measured by a new MASSExpand
TEMPORAL FLUCTUATIONS OF ATMOSPHERIC SEEING
The amplitude and characteristic time of seeing fluctuations due to the free atmosphere are examined using series of Cn2-profiles obtained on Mauna Kea, Hawaii. It is found that the mean ratio of twoExpand
A simple dynamical model of intermittent fully developed turbulence
We present a phenomenological model of intermittency called the P-model and related to the Novikov-Stewart (1964) model. The key assumption is that in scales N &2-” only a fraction /3n of the totalExpand
Lucky imaging: High angular resolution imaging in the visible from the ground
We use a Lucky Imaging system to obtain I -band images with much improved angular resolution on a 2.5 m telescope. We present results from a 10-night assessment campaign on the 2.56 m Nordic OpticalExpand
