Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present results on a test-bed for the use of adaptive optics (AO) in optical interferometry. The test-bed is based on two deformable mirrors made by OKO technologies. The two mirrors are simultaneously controlled by the same computer and control software. The experimental set is based on our portable adaptive optics system. The goal of this test-bed is to study and characterize the effects of aberrations on the fringe contrast and the effects and characterization of the use of AO for improving fringe contrast. In this paper we will report some field test of our portable AO system. We will also describe the test-bed and some of the experimental results obtained so far.
