New results on a Cn2 profiler for GeMS

Cortes, A; Neichel, Benoit; Guesalaga, A; Osborn, J; Rigaut, Francois; Guzman, D


The atmospheric optical turbulence profile, the strength of the turbulence as a function of altitude above the ground, can be used to determine the seeing statistics of a particular site. This information is useful for optimizing the tomographic process in Adaptive Optics systems and for characterizing the performance. In this paper, we describe a method to estimate the atmospheric turbulence profile based on the telemetry data coming out of GeMS, a Multi Conjugated Adaptive Optics (MCAO)...[Show more]
