Abstract
The number and importance of the adaptive optics instruments has grown in the world through the last two decades. Such systems are becoming key elements for large telescopes, with increasing types and complexity. The Very Large Telescope (VLT) has been equipped with many instruments using adaptive optics such as Shack-Hartmann, curvature or pyramid wavefront sensors. In this framework the European Southern Observatory (ESO) has collected a large expertise in the field of instrument integration and in particular the integration of adaptive optics systems. The purpose of this article is to share this expertise with the community and tell how instruments are being built in our organization. Therefore this article is aimed at persons who have some or little experience in integration and optical alignment.
