The path of the SodiumStar laser beam through the atmosphere can be seen due to Rayleigh scattering, but the visibility falls to zero after a few tens of kilometers of height. When the beam enters the mesosphere's sodium layer at 100 km altitude, however, it generates the artificial star needed for adaptive-optics correction. Pointing the guide star at Saturn not only helps to orient in the night sky but leads to impressive snapshots.

FIGURE 1. The 50 W FASOR beam from the Starfire Optical Range 3.5 m telescope creates a guidestar in the mesospheric sodium layer on Apr. 26, 2005. The FASORtronics commercial design (inset) with and without the enclosure panels shows the single-frequency IR laser modules and the sum-frequency generator.

ADAPTIVE OPTICS: High-power guidestar lasers are ready for next-generation AO astronomy

Two types of sodium-guidestar laser with phenomenally high optical power have been separately conceived and developed, one at the AFRL's Starfire Optical Range and one at the ...
