Abstract
This paper outlines potential benefits to the development of astronomical adaptive optics by the transfer of technology from US military laboratories. Areas described include wavefront correctors, focal planes for wavefront sensing and tracking, rugate coatings, lasers for generating sodium guide stars in the mesosphere, the potential of using femtosecond lasers to generate bright, white-light beacons at high altitude.
