A single-frame overdriving scheme was employed to improve the temporal response of the active matrix addressing liquid-crystal spatial light modulator used in an open-loop adaptive optics system (OLAOS). Optimal time distribution giving minimum wavefront residual error for the OLAOS was demonstrated. As a result, the measured 3 decibels rejection frequency was increased from 26 to 35 Hz, and the image quality was significantly improved.
