Paper Abstract

Adaptive optics (AO) system can be used to detect and compensate the aberrational wavefront of beam in real time. The compensative ability will be affected by the detecting precision of wavefront. Noise is one of the most important factors that affect the detecting precision of Hartmann-Shack (HS) sensor. Noise can induce the errors of centroid detected by HS sensor, consequently influences the wavefront reconstruction. Based on the characteristic of Charge Coupled Devices (CCD), the model that simulates the detecting precision of wavefront affected by noise is built. Based on the factual application scene of artificial beacon, for typical HS sensor, the effects of noise on the detecting precision of wavefront are simulated, and the relations of wavefront beam spot in CCD, and the number of pixel used to calculate spot centroid are analyzed. Several results that can be used in engineering application are obtained.
