Paper Abstract

Optical design of a compact adaptive optics system, to be mounted on the side of a large telescope, presents special problems. In particular the limited space requires fast optics. Signal to noise requirements for the wave-front sensor also require that the optics work over a wide optical band. In this paper we describe the design and layout of such an adaptive optics experiment performed on the SOR 3.5 meter telescope.
