Diffraction of Rayleigh Criterion
Subject: Physics | Topics:

The aim of this lecture is to present on Diffraction of Rayleigh Criterion. The telescope aperture produces fringes (Airy disc) that set a limit to the resolution of the telescope. Angular resolution is minimum angular distance between two objects that can be separated. Rayleigh criterion is satisfied when first dark ring produced by one star is coincident with peak of nearby star.
