Abstract

A method for closed-loop stable control of two deformable mirrors for compensation of both amplitude and phase fluctuations is described. A generic implementation is described as well as an implementation that integrates the concept behind a point diffraction interferometer with a two-deformable-mirror system. The relationship of the closed-loop control algorithm to previously developed open-loop iterative algorithms is described. Simulation results are presented that indicate that the system is stable and provides superior performance over that of a single-deformable-mirror system. The impact of finite servo bandwidth on control of two deformable mirrors is evaluated by means of wave optical simulation, and it is found that to achieve a performance improvement attributable to compensation of amplitude fluctuations, the bandwidth of the two-deformable-mirror system must be at least twice the Greenwood frequency.
