Paper Abstract

This paper reports on the measurement and reconstruction using two algorithms of an Adaptive Tilt Mirror's (ATM) reflected wavefront using a Shack-Hartmann (SH) based wavefront sensor. The ATM consists of a deformable mirror mounted onto a fast steering mirror platform. Reconstruction of the wavefront was performed using Finite Difference and Finite Element reconstruction algorithms for comparison. The SH wavefront sensor with high frame-rate readout camera and the two types of software reconstructors provide a visualization of the ATM's surface while being moved physically on the fast steering mirror platform at a rate of 30 Hz.
