State of the art DM, WFS and RTC for atmospheric perturbation compensation

Turbulence introduced by the atmosphere degrades performances of numerous applications like:

• Satellite imaging

• Advanced imaging systems

• Free Space Optical communications

• Laser

ALPAO fast deformable mirror technology enables an optimal compensation of this effect. Combining the DM with our Real Time Computer and wavefront sensor, ALPAO AO systems offer state of the art performances.

ALPAO high actuator number and density deformable mirror can be used in numerous space applications such as coronarography for speckle nulling.
