Abstract

We describe the calibration method to be used for the off-axis laser guide stars at the Large Binocular Telescope’s (LBT’s) advanced Rayleigh guided ground layer adaptive optics system facility and the optical design of a dedicated calibration unit. Several possible solutions for generating artificial stars with the same wavefront as the real beacons were investigated. We find the use of a computer-generated hologram to be the best solution to the problem of producing aberrated light exactly matching that delivered by the primary mirror of the telescope. A detailed design and tolerance analysis is complete and the project is currently moving into the fabrication phase.

Fig. 1

Calibration scheme: Three fibers mounted in the prime focus are projected with a custom objective onto M2 and imaged onto the off-axis WFSs. Additionally, a fiber mounted in the central bore of M2 is reflected off the front surface of the objective and creates a diffraction-limited spot on the science camera.

Layout of the calibration objective. The rays for one of the three sources are shown.

Wavefront map (top) and spot diagram of the system traced backwards, from the WFS onto the fiber. The wavefront error is less than λ / 10 rms . The rms spot size is 4 μm , the Airy disc diameter is 11 μm ; the whole box is 40 μm in size.
