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
