Multichannel informative adaptive systems
Various projects of multi-purpose informative adaptive system are under way now. Adaptive systems will serve as add-on device for various types of telescopes, cameras, imaging devices etc.
The multiconjugative adaptive system
To overcome the restriction connected with anisoplanatizm of a turbulent
atmosphere is possible with application of the so-called multiconjugative
adaptive systems. The basic idea consists in the necessity to compensate
an atmosphere distortions not with one deformable mirror, but with the several
mirrors conjugating with different layers of an atmosphere along the light
The main problem is to create the effective sensor to carry out "multilayer" measurement of distortions. The scheme of such sensor is developed in ASC "Femto". The tests and computer simulating confirm its efficiency. Now manufacturing of 3-layers adaptive system for 3m telescope is in progress. This system will have 384 control channel.
