abstract

The study of phase discontinuities caused by atmospheric turbulence is a recent research topic; their study might yield significant improvements in high-quality adaptive optics systems, laser weapons and laser communication. We present in this paper an introduction to discontinuities in the light phase. We also provide a geometrical description of phase discontinuities, a study of their effect on Hartmann-Shack sensor measurements, as well as algorithms for measuring discontinuous light phases and the position of phase discontinuities.
