On the isoplanatic patch size in High Angular Resolution Techniques

Abstract : To reach a high performance with an adaptive optics system, we need a calibration using a reference source. This latter should be located in the same isoplanatic domain as the science source. Different techniques and methods have been developed leading to estimations of the isoplanatic patch but all are model-dependent. We developed a new technique for the estimation of the isoplanatic angle based on an extended object. This technique is now part of our new turbulence profile monitor PML (Profiler of Moon Limb) based on the observation of the Moon limb or Sun edge. The first statistics of the isoplanatic angle with this new technique are presented and compared to the exiting techniques based on scintillation measurements or other turbulence parameters such as Fried parameter and/or C2n profile.
