Abstract

Because of atmospheric turbulence, the fringes produced by a Michelson stellar interferometer appear as a random modulation of the two superimposed stellar images. The contribution of the related high spatial frequency peaks in the image Wiener spectrum has been computed as a function of the diameter of the apertures and of the seeing conditions. This contribution appears to be independent of the seeing condition for large apertures.
