The OSA 2005 Special Topical Meeting on “Adaptive Optics: Analysis and Methods” was held in Charlotte, North Carolina, on June 8th and 9th of that year. The papers presented during those two days provided an overview of recent progress in the theory and application of adaptive optics (AO) for real-time atmospheric turbulence compensation. This Focus Issue is devoted to a further exploration of seven of these topics, ranging from formal analytical treatments of optimal estimation and control methods for AO, to recent field tests of wave front sensing and reconstruction using multiple laser guide stars.
