Abstract
The purpose of this paper is to report on new adaptive optics (AO) developments at the W. M. Keck Observatory since the 2000 SPIE meeting. These developments include completion of the Keck I AO system, interferometric combination of the full apertures of the two Keck telescopes using AO on both telescopes, commissioning of two science instruments with the Keck II AO system, first projection of the Keck II sodium laser beacon, progress on laser guide star AO, improved automation of the AO systems and a diversity of AO science programs.
