Abstract

The laser beacons produced by Rayleigh scattering have the potential to correct 6-10 m class telescopes over a small field of view. The laser can give brighter beacon and information about atmospheric turbulence. Atmospheric tomography uses short pulses and the number of brighter beacons or stars increases with number of layers included in the tomographic solution. These can be used in very large telescopes as it shows the minimum reliance over natural stars for the space research.
