27 July 2016 Simulations of E-ELT telescope effects on AO system performance
Author Affiliations +
We study the impact of various telescope effects (like effect of phasing errors, missing segments, etc) on the performance of SCAO systems. This paper is using the E-ELT with 798 primary mirror segments. For example, we will show what kind of AO system (number of sub-apertures, frame-rate) is necessary to compensate for these effects, to get a fully seeing limited performance from the telescope.
