Adaptive Optics (AO) Simulation Package

Synopsis: Software to Simulate an Astronomical Adaptive Optics System. Simulates a system with a telescope, deformable mirror (either piezo stack or bimorph), wavefront sensor (either a curvature wavefront sensor or a Shack-Hartman wavefront sensor) and runs a simulation of the closed loop performance.

Language: IDL

Operating System: Needs a Unix System with IDL (uses Environment variables)

Other Requirements: Uses the IDL Astro-Lib Library

History: Written by Francois Rigaut 1993-2001

Version: V4.3.2
