Abstract

Adaptive Optics (AO) systems compensate the nefari-ous effects of atmospheric turbulence affecting image formation on ground-based telescopes. Deformable Mirrors (DMs) are inserted in the telescope optical path to correct for the deformations induced by turbulence, in real-time, using Wave Front Sensor (WFS) measurements. The upcoming AO systems for ELTs (Extremely Large Telescopes) will feature a huge number of WFS measurements and DM actuators, and the design of high performance controllers adapted to these dimensions is a real challenge. In this article we compare the performance of several controllers: standard integral action, LQG (Linear Quadratic Gaussian) based on Kalman filter, and a highly paralleliz-able LQG based on Distributed Kalman Filter (DKF), which is built on Fourier domain models. Performance evaluation for a Single Conjugated AO (SCAO) configuration of a VLT-like telescope (8m) allows to discuss the extension to ELT-size high performance controllers.
