4 August 2014 Quasi-realtime solar adaptive optics simulation
Author Affiliations +
We are currently implementing a solar adaptive optics (AO) and multi-conjugate adaptive optics (MCAO) simulation package that provides a full simulation, including wavefront sensor cross-correlations, and is able to operate at quasi-realtime performance. This is made possible by modern personal computers with many cores, which allow the operation of a solar AO system with relatively inexpensive off-the-shelf computers. The simulation package uses KAOS, a mature AO controller software used at the GREGOR solar telescope, to operate the simulated AO system. It provides a simulated environment that is presented to KAOS to achieve a highly realistic and fast simulation of solar AO.
