4 November 1982 Modal Control For Wavefront Reconstruction In Adaptive Optics
Author Affiliations +
In adaptive optics, the compensating phase distribution can be generated by an expansion of the turbulence phase distortions into modes of a set of basis functions, i.e. Zernike-polynomials and Karhunen-Loeve-functions. By applying a modal control concept to a practical adaptive optical system, the electrodes of a membrane mirror can be controlled in parallel with greatly reduced cross-talk. The coefficients of the approximating functions, each of which corresponds to a certain mode of the mirror surface, are fed back to the actuators by a modal control matrix. The atmospheric turbulences are taken into account by extending the local differential operator in an "observer"-like structure.
