Abstract
Wavefront control is a key issue for developing different systems including: lasers (for various applications: isotopic separation, femto second solid state lasers, micro lithography...), imaging through turbulent media, ophthalmology... For these purposes, we have developed an adaptive optics system that can achieve wavefront very high precision correction. Subsystems will be described including the Wavefront Sensor (Shack-Hartman type), the Deformable Mirror (Bimorph type) and the Real Time Computer (PC type). Emphasis will be made on results that can be obtained using such a system: ultimate quality of the corrected wavefront, measurement range (important during capture phases).
