Paper Abstract

We present the optical design of a laboratory demonstrator for a low- order adaptive optics system with possible application to improving the performance of a free-space optical communication system. The initial design includes a Shack-Hartmann wavefront sensor with high-speed CMOS camera and a 37-element membrane mirror.
