Abstract
The influence of the turbulence outer scale on the power spectrum (PS) of speckle interferograms and on the Strehl ratio obtained with low-order adaptive optics (AO) system is examined by numerical simulation. It is shown that the outer scale has a little positive effect the PS when the outer scale magnitude becomes less than the aperture diameter. The finite outer scale has a positive effect on the STrehl ratio of the uncorrected long-exposure image. It is also shown that the Strehl ratio produced by a second-order AO correction is affected quite strongly by the finite outer scale. For the more higher-order correction, the effect under study is very weak and it appears only when the outer scale magnitude becomes less than the aperture diameter.
