Paper Abstract

Fast adaptive optical system can be used, for example, for correction of laser beam passed through a strong turbulent atmosphere. The frequency that such a system should operate with to achieve an acceptable level of wavefront correction is about 1 - 1.5 kHz. There are two most popular methods to develop this system: by using a standard PC computer and by using FPGA. This paper presents the advantages and disadvantages of each of these approaches. The results obtained with the use of these systems are presented. Recommendation for achieving higher performance are given.
