Accurate wavefront reconstruction for real-time AO with pyramid wavefront sensorsMS9

Pyramid wavefront sensors are planned to be included on large earthbound telescopes currently under development. These rely on real-time adaptive optics systems to compensate for atmospheric perturbations. Using our mathematical analysis of the pyramid sensor model, we present several algorithms for a high-quality and high-speed wavefront correction including gradient-based methods and approaches based on the inversion of the Finite Hilbert transform, and we take into account data disconnectivity induced by telescope spider legs.
