Paper Abstract

Shortwave adaptive optical systems are required for ground-to-space transfer of laser power. These systems require high temporal bandwidth wavefront correction elements with between 1,000 and 10,000 degrees of freedom. We have developed a prototype segmented mirror whose wavefront correction capability can match these requirements. Details of the design and suggestions of how this technology could impact the NGT design are given.
