Abstract
The infrared emission of astronomical sources is buried in a large background due to the thermal emission of the telescope. The real time deformations of an adaptive flexible mirror are likely to produce a spurious modulation of this background, adding noise to the signal. We estimate here the amount of noise introduced by such a mirror.
