Atmospheric Compensation Using Laser Beacons

Researchers at MIT Lincoln Laboratory and the Air Force Phillips Laboratory have demonstrated real-time correction of turbulence induced atmospheric wavefront distortions using laser beacon adaptive optics. These experiments could have a profound impact on the course of astronomy during the next decade.
