Paper Abstract

In conventional Adaptive optics (AO) system, wavefront aberration is measured by wavefront sensor. However, a point source is usually not available in most imaging systems. Therefore development of deformable mirror control scheme in adaptive optics system based on vision information will extend the application area of AO technique. A focus measure (FM) is a measure of image quality and can be calculated from image data obtained from the image sensor. It can be used to find the optimal shape of the deformable mirror that compensates the wavefront aberration. In this paper, we analyze the performance of focus measures under different types of wavefront aberrations. The relation of FM vs. the aberration strength is analyzed systematically for different aberration modes and different FM functions. The FM performance under combination of aberrations is also investigated. This research supplies a guide for selection of the suitable FM function and strategy for control of deformable mirror in the AO system.
