Abstract

A Zernike expansion of wind-induced deformations in a segmented mirror is described. The wind model is a frozen turbulent field with a Kolmogorov spectrum for scales smaller than the outer scale and a flat spectrum for scales larger than the outer scale. The approach allows a mode-by-mode comparison of the wave-front error contributions from atmospheric phase distortions, wind-induced deformations, and the mirror control system noise. This is used to design a controller that minimizes the mirror surface errors by application of corrections based on edge sensor measurements and wave-front measurements on a guide star.
