Considerations for EAGLE from Monte Carlo adaptive optics simulation.

Basden, Alastair and Myers, Richard and Butterley, Timothy (2010) 'Considerations for EAGLE from Monte Carlo adaptive optics simulation.', Applied optics., 49 (31). G1-G8.


The EAGLE instrument for the European Extremely Large Telescope is a multi-object integral field unit spectrograph that uses a multi-object adaptive optics (AO) system for wavefront correction of interesting lines of sight. We present a Monte Carlo AO simulation package that has been used to model the performance of EAGLE, and provide results, including comparisons with an analytical code. These results include an investigation of the performance of compressed reconstructor representations that have the potential to significantly reduce the complexity of a real-time control system when implemented.
