Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present simulation work done on AO systems for the E-ELT. We study the influence of the number of Laser Guide Stars (LGS) on system performance. Then, we investigate the impact of the conjugation height of the M4 adaptive mirror on GL/LT/MC-AO. Finally, we compare the results of a Fourier code and end-to-end models on the position of the LGS in the field of view.
