but it has been detected with speckle interferometry.
After the BLENDER analysis, the team spent another year gathering follow-up observations in the form of high-resolution spectroscopy, adaptive optics imaging, and speckle interferometry to thoroughly characterize the systems.
Individual chapter topics include radial speckle interferometry, depth-resolved displacement field measurement, optical vortex metrology, and speckle coding for optical and digital data security applications.
Using the available techniques, the HXN can also perform crystallographic phase determination, crystallographic texture mapping, and speckle interferometry.
Speckle interferometry is 2-dimensional phase interferometry.
Several authors [7,8] have discussed various aspects of laser-based systems in general, considering holographic [9] and moire [4] methods, laser-interferometry [10] and laser speckle interferometry [4,9] and have shown that most of them are more sensitive to the above-mentioned rigid body displacements than the laser speckle shift method, discussed in this paper.
In a previous article (2) we used dynamic speckle interferometry (DSI) to study the drying process of waterborne and solventborne paints, where the drying times were long enough to follow the process properly.
He obtained the images using a modification of an observing method known as speckle interferometry.
Photoelasticity, deflectometry methods and grids, holography, speckle interferometry and image correlation are thus the subject of dedicated chapters.
Speckle interferometry has now replaced visual micrometry as the standard means for observing "visual" binaries.
Imaging tecniques such as speckle interferometry -- which essentially "freezes" the motion in the atmosphere from moment to moment by taking a succession of quick snapshots--are already pushing telescope technology to greater precision.
