Paper Abstract

The components used in curvature wavefront sensors are described with respect to mounting and adjustment requirements. In particular, the techniques used in the construction of the wavefront sensor employed in the adaptive optics bonnette at the Canada-France-Hawaii telescope are described in detail. Descriptions include methods of mounting components, design and adjustment of optics and of fiber-optic feeds for avalanche photo-diodes, and ways of monitoring wavefront sensor alignment and performance during operation.
