Abstract

A 134-control-channel adaptive-optics system consisting of a microelectromechanical mirror array (μ -mirror), a wave-front tilt-control mirror, and a very large scale integration controller utilizing a stochastic gradient-descent optimization of a performance metric is presented. A maximum adaptation rate of ~11, 000 iterations/s was achieved. The system was used to demonstrate real-time compensation for dynamic phase distortions from a laboratory-generated turbulence simulator in a laser-focusing experiment.
