Modeling of Wavefront Control Systems

Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume 377)


In Sect. 5.5, we introduced typical components of telescope wavefront control systems and explained their operation principles. We noted that wavefront control systems include wavefront sensors to measure optical quality, controllers that determine which control action to take, and actuation systems that adjust form or position of optical elements.We now explain in more detail the modeling principles for some typical subsystems and begin with wavefront sensors.
