Paper Abstract

A review of the current practice in wavefront sensor design at Adaptive Optics Associates (AOA) is presented. The principles of Hartmann sensing and matrix reconstruction are reviewed, and sensor performance required for compensation of atmospheric imaging is estimated. The structure of the digital processor based sensors built at AOA is discussed, with two recent systems as examples.
