Abstract
We present our recently started eort to realize feedforward vibration control loops with a full adaptive optics (AO) testbed in the laboratory. A piezo-driven tip-tilt mirror unit introduces an arbitrary, but controllable, vibration power-spectrum to simulate telescope mirror vibrations of any kind on the wavefront sensor. Our ultimate goal is to demonstrate in realistic laboratory tests, how telescope vibrations faster than atmospheric tip-tilt can be measured by accelerometers, and controlled in real-time feedforward to allow for longer and more sensitive wavefront sensor (WFS) integrations.
