Paper Abstract

Adaptive optics systems are highly complicated networks of devices that makes an analytical study of such systems difficult. Hence numerical simulations are crucial in providing a quantitative evaluation of capabilities of adaptive optics systems. The integrated simulations of atmospheric turbulence, wind profiles, Fresnel light propagation, model of Shack- Hartmann wavefront sensor, and wavefront reconstruction are done, and the aim is to simulate adaptive optics correction process and investigate the atmospheric turbulence and Shack-Hartmann sensor parameters on optimal results. The results of simulation of light propagation through turbulent atmosphere are presented.
