The design of the adaptive optics (AO) system for the GMT is currently being developed. The baseline system is planned around a segmented adaptive secondary mirror (ASM), with elements similar in size to current ASM's for 8 m telescopes. A facility wavefront sensing system is planned to provide AO correction at several science instrument ports. The AO system will contain a subsystem dedicated to controlling the relative phases between the seven segments of the GMT aperture. The anticipated...[Show more]
