28 July 2010 Adaptive optics and MCAO for the 4-m European Solar Telescope EST
Author Affiliations +
A consortium of more than 20 European solar physics institution from 15 different countries is conducting a design study for a 4 m class solar telescope which shall be situated at the Canary Islands. In this paper we introduce the AO and MCAO design concept for EST. A ground layer deformable mirror is combined with an arrangement of four deformable layer mirrors. A combination of Shack-Hartmann wave front sensors with wide and narrow fields of view is used to control the system and to achieve a corrected field of view of one arcmin.
