A Comparison of Tomography Reconstruction Techniques for MCAO and MOAO: Theory and Laboratory Experience

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


We compare multiple guidestar tomography reconstruction techniques for adaptive optics systems designed to correct over a wide field of view. Two different approaches that are commonly presented in the literature are shown to be mathematically equivalent but have differing interpretations and numerical consequences. We demonstrate with simulations and also present some early test results from experiments with the multi-guidestar AO testbed at the Laboratory for Adaptive Optics.
