OSKar Guest Talk

On Thursday 31st Jan 2013, OSKar is inviting Dr. Szymon Gladysz from the team of Forschungsinstitut für Optronik Systemtechnik und Bildauswertung in Fraunhofer IOSB to give a talk on Adaptive Optics. This would be a great opportunity for all students interested in Optics to know more about the futuristic application related to field of Adaptive Optics.

Title:

“From Star Wars through exoplanets to supernormal vision: the history of adaptive optics.”

Guest Speaker:

Dr. Szymon Gładysz

He is head of the adaptive optics group at the Fraunhofer Institute of Optronics, System Technologies and Image Exploitation (Fraunhofer IOSB) in Ettlingen. He has graduated from Wrocław University of Technology in Poland, and obtained his PhD from the National University of Ireland in Galway. He has worked in USA, Israel and Germany on theoretical aspects of light propagation through turbulence for astronomical and military applications and is the recipient of awards from University of California and the US Air Force Office of Scientific Research.

You can get preparation to treat acute treatment of the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis or cramp. Unconditionally most famous is Viagra. What about sexual soundness and women viagra and womens viagra? Like many other medicines, Viagra is classified according of it’s main ingredient. Also known as impotence is defined as the impossibility to maintain an erection suitable for intercourse. Is it dangerous? Of course. Multiple sclerosis can contribute to erectile dysfunction. While the remedy is credited with nerve pain, it can also kill the mood in bedroom. Causes of erectile disfunction include psychological factors, such as nervousness over his ability to sexually perform.

Fraunhofer IOSB: Talk on Adaptive Optics

Abstract:

Adaptive optics is a technology of correcting the effect of atmospheric turbulence on images of space objects and laser beams propagating through turbulence. It was developed by US military starting in the late 1960s, then extended to high-energy laser weapons as part of the ballistic missile defense programs like the Strategic Defense Initiative (also known as “Star Wars”). Especially significant advances were made by the scientists at the Air Force Weapons Laboratory and MIT/Lincoln Laboratory who carried out the first laser guide star experiments, creating artificial beacons in the sky.

In parallel, astronomers have been working on adaptive optics systems for viewing celestial bodies. The “killer application” of adaptive optics, identified by the astronomical community in the late 1990s, is the direct imaging of extrasolar planets – planets orbiting stars other than our Sun. Defined specifically for this purpose extreme adaptive optics is the technology aiming at imaging of objects which are 106 to 109 fainter than their host stars. These systems, when viewed without adaptive optics, are completely swamped by the light of the bright stars.

The most recent application of adaptive optics is in ophthalmology. Only after compensation for ocular aberrations is it possible to view cones and rods in the human retina in vivo. Conversely, in the near future it might be possible to design adaptive contact lenses or glasses giving a person wearing them “supernormal vision”.

 

You can get medicament to treat acute treatment of the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis or cramp. Unconditionally most famous is Viagra. What about sexual heartiness and women viagra and womens viagra? Like many other medicines, Viagra is classified according of it’s main ingredient. Also known as impotence is defined as the impossibility to maintain an erection suitable for intercourse. Is it dangerous? Of course. Multiple sclerosis can promote to erectile disfunction. While the remedy is credited with nerve hurt, it can also kill the mood in bedroom. Causes of erectile dysfunction include psychologic factors, such as nervousness over his ability to sexually perform.
