Astronomy

State-of-the-art DM with large number of actuators, large stroke (no separate tip-tilt mirror) and short settling time.

Turbulence introduced by the atmosphere degrades images taken using telescopes. Using adaptive optics recovers much of the information that is lost. As a result, it is possible to increase your number and quality of scientific observations.

ALPAO components and systems provide solutions for the following issues:

• Low photon flux
• High frequency of atmospheric turbulence
