Principles of Adaptive Optics is a comprehensive guide to adaptive optics systems and components. It covers all the basic principles, analytical tools, and instrumentation hardware included in an adaptive optics system. This single volume resource includes hundreds of references and outlines design and performance analysis of adaptive optics wavefront sensors, controls, correcting optics, and their integrated operation. The book discusses adaptive optics, system analysis and system design, and the major subsystems: wavefront sensors, correcting optics, wavefront reconstructors, and real-time controls. It details the principal equations that govern atmospheric turbulence compensation.
The book contains nearly 700 citations that cover a quarter century of research and development. It includes a new section on laser guide stars and their usage. It also includes recently declassified military information on laser guided stars and all the governing equations of wavefront error, imaging system resolution, beam tilt or wander, scintillation, temporal spectra, anisoplantism, and guide star position.
