Paper Abstract

There are currently a number of groups developing adaptive optics instruments for diffraction limited imaging from ground-based optical telescopes. With few exceptions these programs are intended initially for large (3 - 5 metre) telescopes and, ultimately, the next generation of very large (8 - 10 metre) telescopes. In view of the technical difficulties associated with the large number of elements required for adaptive correction at optical wavelengths most systems will operate at 2 - 5 μm, and employ IR imaging cameras4 as the system detectors.
