25 October 2004 Subaru Telescope LGSAO: overview of expected performance
Author Affiliations +
Abstract
The Subaru Telescope LGSAO system is a 188 elements curvature AO system currently under construction, and scheduled to have first light in March 2006 for the Natural Guide Star mode and March 2007 for the Laser Guide Star mode. A particularity of this system will be to perform curvature wavefront sensing with several extra-pupil distances, which significantly improves the closed-loop performance. An overview of the predicted performance of the system is given for Natural Guide Star and Laser Guide Star modes.
