Optical applications such as astronomy, remote sensing, and laser communications are adversely affected by atmospheric effects such as turbulence. A fairly common approach to compensating for these atmospheric effects is to use a standard statistical model, such as the Kolmogorov model, to calculate the parameters needed to build compensating systems based on wavefront sensors and […]
High-speed wave-optics simulations based on GPU/CUDA technology Predictive numerical analysis of atmospheric optical systems is commonly performed using the Monte-Carlo technique. The Monte-Carlo approach requires numerical integration of the wave propagation equations in an optically inhomogeneous medium such as the atmosphere to be repeated hundreds of times and results in extremely time-consuming computations. To address […]
