The Cumulative Reconstructor is an accurate, extremely fast reconstruction algorithm for Shack–Hartmann wavefront sensor data. But it has shown an unacceptable high noise propagation for large apertures. Therefore, in this paper we describe a domain decomposition approach to deal with this drawback. We show that this adaptation of the algorithm gives the same reconstruction quality as the original algorithm and leads to a significant improvement with respect to noise propagation. The method is combined with an integral control and compared to the classical matrix vector multiplication algorithm on an end-to-end simulation of a single conjugate adaptive optics system. The reconstruction time is (number of subapertures), and the method is parallelizable.
