The METIS AO system: Bringing Extreme Adaptive Optics to the mid-IR

Abstract:

METIS (Mid-infrared E-ELT Imager and Spectrometer) is the mid-infrared instrument proposed for the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT). METIS will be the first instrument in the mid-IR that will actually require an Adaptive Optics system in order to reach a performance close to the diffraction limit. Extending Adaptive Optics for the mid-IR from the current generation of telescopes to 30-42 meter telescopes is technically challenging, but appears at first sight significantly easier tha...
