Abstract

A method for calculating the actuator influence functions of an active mirror is described. The method is based on a model of the mirror as a thin plate attached by actuators to a very stiff reaction structure. Arbitrary actuator layouts can be handled. The mirror deflections calculated agree well with the results of a finite element analysis of the structure.
