Paper Abstract

Supercontinuum laser, as a new type of laser source, compared with monochromatic or quasi-monochromatic light, has incandescent wide spectra and the brightness of the laser. However,the beam quality in high power is usually bad and greatly affected by atmospheric turbulence in the transmission process. Therefore, how to improve the beam quality to ensure the energy transmission and image quality has become a popular topic. According to the measurement results of the near field wavefront characteristics of the supercontinuum laser in different wavelength, we know that the wavefront phase of the light source is relatively stable and change slowly over time. The types of wavefront distortion at each wavelength are basically the same, mainly made up of defocus and astigmatism. In order to conform to the wavefront characteristics of supercontinuum laser, the input of simulation is low-order static distortion wavefront generated by using Zernike polynomia with defocus and astigmatism. Stochastic Parallel Gradient Descent (SPGD) algorithm with the thorlabs DMP40 deformable mirror and CCD camera as the imaging sensor, is used to construct a simulation model for wavefront correction of low-order static distortion aberrations. Since B-SPGD algorithm is superior to U-SPGD in terms of convergence speed and correction effect, as well as adaptability to the near field wavefront distortion [1], we use B-SPGD algorithm to construct the simulation program for wavefront correction simulation research. The ability and convergence of SPGD algorithm to correct wavefront distortion are studied, mainly about the random disturbance amplitude and influence coefficient of the core parameters. In order to get close to the evaluation standard of laser in practical application, Strehl Ratio(SR) is selected as the performance evaluation function. According to the effective diameter of deformable mirror and the distance between electrodes, the influence function of deformable mirror is normalized to the unit circle to meet the requirements of simulation calculation. In order to improve the stability of SPGD algorithm and reduce the possibility of SPGD algorithm falling into local extreme values, we use Hessian matrix to optimize SPGD algorithm. After simulation and analysis of distortion correction of Supercontinuum laser wavefront, deformable mirror controlled by SPGD algorithm has good correction capability for low-order static aberration.
