Abstract

An experimental validation of the spatially filtered Shack–Hartmann concept (F-SH) is presented that allows aliasing effects to be decreased. This effect is studied by use of an adaptive optical testbed with a focal plane pinhole in front of the wave-front sensor. First, the ability to close the loop on turbulence is demonstrated. Then the performance gain conferred by the device is quantified and compared with end-to-end simulation results. Another property of the F-SH concept, i.e., the reduction of the waffle modes, is highlighted.
