Paper Abstract

The performance degradation due to the finite time response of an adaptive optical system is studied. It is concluded that the degradation is a strong function of the time delay between wavefront sensing and wavefront correction. The degradation can be also expressed as a strong function of the aperture size and overall wave front tilt removal.
