"Subaru Laser Guide Star AO System Preliminary Design Review "

Subaru AO team

We have a Preliminary Design Review meeting of the Subaru Laser Guide Star Adaptive Optics system on Dec. 2 and 3 at the Hilo office of Subaru Telescope. The system is an upgrade of the existing 36 element curvature sensor based AO system. The system will be equipped at the Nasmyth focus with a 188 element curvature sensor, and a bimorph deformable mirror. We plan to have the first light as a natural guide star system in 2005 and the laser first light in 2006. The meeting agenda is
Subaru Hilo Office, room 104A
(We have lunch buffet service.)
