Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


A model of a typical adaptive optics system is described in the report. The model includes all main elements of a real system: the path of a beam propagating in the atmosphere, wavefront sensor, and adaptive mirror with continuous surface. Solution to the some of adaptive optics problems was obtained with the model. These results were included in the report as illustration of the model utility.
