Paper Abstract

The Mid-High Wavefront Sensors (MHWS) are components of the adaptive optics system of LINC-NIRVANA, the Fizeau interferometer that will be mounted at the LBT. These sensors, one for each telescope arm, will measure the atmospheric turbulence in the high altitude layers, using up to 8 reference stars in a 2 arcmin Field of View, and they will be coupled with two Ground Layer WFSs that will measure the lower part of the atmospheric turbulence using up to 12 stars over an annular Field of View from 2 to 6 arcmin in diameter. We will describe the opto-mechanical layout of the MHWS and the Assembly, Integration and Test (AIT) phase of the first sensor in the laboratory of the Bologna Observatory.
