27 September 2007 Low-cost high-speed control for adaptive optics
Author Affiliations +
The outcomes of research at the Durham University Centre for Advanced Instrumentation into the use of low cost devices in the construction and operation of adaptive optics systems is presented. An embedded low cost sensing and control system for high speed AO is presented where the components for sensing and control cost under us$400 and we demonstrate the possibility to build and operate an AO system where the sensor and controller have a combined cost of under us$150. An alternative application of the work as a data processing smart camera is presented.
