Abstract
An adaptive optics(AO) system can apply a real time compensation to light wavefront distortion, so it plays an important part in imaging through the atmosphere, such as astronomical observation. When light propagates through the atmosphere, the atmospheric turbulence induces wave-front distortion of the light, so it is very important to investigate the AO system and light propagation in the atmosphere together. By mean of simulation calculation and theoretical analysis, it is far more inexpensive to investigate performance of an AO system under various conditions. And the most important thing is that by means of these works, we can clearly understand the effect of each part of an AO system, as well as its whole effect. Then we can enhance the compensate capability of an AO system more efficiently.
