Paper Abstract

Fine steering mirrors of satellite-based laser communication systems operate at high frequencies. Performance of such mirrors are adversely affected by bending modes of their moving parts. Application of feedforward compensation of bending modes, resulting in a model reference control scheme, is considered for 5 KHz and 500 Hz optical mirrors.
