Abstract
We report in this paper on the current activities of the Laser Guide Star group at ESO. We are building the Laser Guide Star Facility on the VLT UT4, we are pushing new technologies in view of multiple LGS and future ELT LGS-AO systems. We are studying new LGS propagation/sensing schemes, to get rid of the LGS cone effect. We are also fostering in member states countries the development of fast sensors to deal with pulsed lasers atmospheric layer sensing.
