Paper Abstract

A numerical model of a typical adaptive optics system is described in the report. The developed computer application corresponding to the model includes all the main elements of a real system, namely, computer codes simulating radiation propagation in a turbulent atmosphere with thermal blooming and codes simulating the elements of adaptive optics system (a model of a Shack-Hartmann wavefront sensor, two algorithms of dislocation localization, and a model of adaptive mirror with continuous surface). In the report we include solutions to the some of adaptive optics problems obtained with the model: realization of amplitude-phase control in two-mirror adaptive system, the method to improve the stability of correction for thermal blooming, evaluation of a Shack-Hartmann sensor performance, and some others. These results demonstrate that the set of the developed models is a powerful tool for simulations in the field of adaptive optics.
