11 February 2003 KAOS: Adaptive optics system for the Vacuum Tower Telescope at Teide Observatory
Author Affiliations +
We are completing the integration of a solar adaptive optics system KAOS at the 70 cm diameter Vacuum Tower telescope (VTT) on Tenerife. The system is capable to compensate some 30 modes of wavefront aberration with closed-loop bandwidth of about 100 Hz anywhere on the solar disk. We describe the design goals, the main characteristics of KAOS and present a first demonstration of its performance.
