Profile Summary

Céline d'Orgeville is a Professor at the Australian National University (ANU) Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics (RSAA). She leads the Laser Guide Star Adaptive Optics (LGS AO) group at the ANU Advanced Instrumentation and Technology Centre (AITC) located at Mount Stromlo Observatory near Canberra, Australia. Laser Guide Star (LGS) activities undertaken at the ANU AITC include the Laser Tomography Adaptive Optics (LTAO) system design for the Giant Magellan Telescope, the LGS facility and LGS wavefront sensor designs for the ULTIMATE-Subaru Ground Layer Adaptive Optics (GLAO) system, and a number of LGS AO projects for the Space Environment Management Cooperative Research Centre aiming to enhance the tracking of satellites and space debris by the EOS laser tracking station on Mount Stromlo. Celine also holds an ANU Translational Fellowship with a goal to commercialise her research on sodium guidestar lasers.
Prior to moving to Australia, Céline worked at the Gemini Observatory where she led the design, fabrication and commissioning phases of the Gemini North LGS facility in Hawaii (1999-2006), and the Gemini South LGS facility in Chile (2007-2011). The Gemini South AO system, GeMS, was the first facility Multi-Conjugate AO (MCAO) facility system in the world. It uses five sodium LGS to probe the atmosphere and restore the diffraction-limit of the Gemini South 8-meter telescope over a 2 arcminute field of view.
Céline holds two Masters degrees in Optics and Photonics from Paris XI University, and Optical Engineering with specialization in Lasers and Non-Linear Optics from the "Institut d'Optique" Graduate School (Orsay, France).
