SUMMER SCHOOL ON ADAPTIVE OPTICS




LOCATION: University of California, Santa Cruz

DATE: July 8-14, 2000


SPONSORING ORGANIZATIONS:
Center for Adaptive Optics (NSF Science and Technology Center)
National Optical Astronomy Observatories

DESCRIPTION:
We will be meeting on the beautiful campus of the University of California in Santa Cruz to learn the techniques of adaptive optics and the way they are applied in practice. With the advent of adaptive optics systems on large telescopes that are accessible to large user communities (Gemini, VLT, Keck, and many 4m-class telescopes), there is a need to spread the knowledge of how to use this complicated technology effectively. In addition to astronomy, the Summer School will address applications of adaptive optics to vision science. We will be describing system components, and the general adaptive optics concepts that will be relevant for both astronomy and vision science. The level of this summer school is appropriate to graduate students, postdocs, and researchers who are not experts in the field.
