Paper Abstract

A solar adaptive optics system for the 60 cm domeless solar telescope of the Hida Observatory in Japan is developed. A high-speed deformable mirror with 52 electromagnetic actuators is newly used in an experimental adaptive optics system. The use of the mirror resulted in the improvement of Strehl ratios in laboratory experiments. In solar observations, the system worked well when solar granulation was used as a target for wavefront sensing. An adaptive optics system being developed for a vertical spectrograph of the domeless solar telescope is described.
