To achieve the high adaptive optics sky coverage necessary to allow the GMT Integral-Field Spectrograph to access key scientific targets, the on-instrument adaptive-optics wavefront-sensing system must patrol the full 180 arcsecond diameter guide field passed to the instrument. Starlight must be held stationary on the wavefront sensor (accounting for flexure, differential refraction and non-sidereal tracking rates) to ∼ 1 milliarcsecond to provide the stable position reference signal for deep...[Show more]
