Butterley, T. and Love, G. D. and Wilson, R. W. and Myers, R. M. and Morris, T. J. (2006) 'A Shack-Hartmann wavefront sensor projected on to the sky with reduced focal anisoplanatism.', Monthly notices of the Royal Astronomical Society., 368 (2). pp. 837-843.
A method for producing a laser guide star wavefront sensor for adaptive optics with reduced focal anisoplanatism is presented. A theoretical analysis and numerical simulations have been carried out and the results are presented. The technique, named Sky-Projected Laser Array Shack–Hartmann (SPLASH), is shown to suffer considerably less from focal anisoplanatism than a conventional laser guide star system. The method is potentially suitable for large telescope apertures (8 m), and possibly for extremely large telescopes.
