Research activities in the Adaptive Optics Group at Fraunhofer IOSB revolve around imaging through turbulence (especially along horizontal paths and strong turbulence) and free-space laser communications. We are developing simulations, theoretical models, image processing software and adaptive optics systems. Light propagation along horizontal paths has unique challenges, quite different from astronomical adaptive optics, and therefore we promote unconventional approaches to the problem.
