Paper Abstract

In this paper, we simulate different possibilities to upgrade the Adaptive Optics Facility (AOF) of the VLT, to reach the diffraction limit in the near infrared. We present simulations of Ground Layer AO, Laser Tomography AO, Multi-Conjugate AO, Dual AO and a hybrid system which is a simplified version of MCAO. We describe the strengths and weaknesses of each approach and summarize the studies to be still carried out.
