Paper Abstract

Optimization of a Shack-Hartmann based WFS is proposed for XAO systems. Both aliasing effects and noise propagation issues is investigated in order to optimize the WFS device. In particular a new estimator of the spot position is proposed and characterized both analytically and using end-to-end simulations. Analytical expressions of the slope measurement errors is derived and the gain brought by our new Weighted Center of Gravity estimator is quantified.
