Adaptive optics wavefront controllers are tractably synthesized using loopshaping and internal model control principles. Modal responses at low and high temporal frequencies can thus be specified distinctly using pairs of open-loop reconstructors. Theoretical examples and parametric simulations illustrate the stability, robustness, and flexibility of the method, which incorporates several existing techniques.
