Simulations of time series of atmospherically distorted wavefronts

Jakobsson, Hans (1996) In Applied Optics 35(9). p.1561-1565
Abstract
A comparatively simple way to generate time series of atmospherically distorted wave fronts is described and tested. Temporal power spectra of Zernike aberrations, extracted from the time series, agree very well with theoretical predictions. A method for generation of longer time series is also shown to give results in accordance with theory, except for the lowest temporal frequencies modeled. A way to superimpose several time series of wave fronts to generate a multilayer model of the atmosphere is briefly discussed.
