Paper Abstract

The objective of Adaptive Optics is to achieve dynamic correction of severely abberated systems. This effort will develop a novel adaptive optics approach based on wavelets. Distortions are imprinted on the wavefront in the form of a spatially varying phase field. A wavelet-based method is being developed to subtract out distortions to yield a fully corrected image. This method will be initially developed for laser systems but aims eventually to be used for adaptive optical systems for ground-based telescopes.
