Description of our Summer School Program

This workshop provides advanced professional training in the field of Adaptive Optics. Adaptive Optics (AO) refers to optical systems which adapt to compensate for time-variable optical distortions introduced by the medium between an object and its image. AO leads to appreciably sharper images, and the resolution of optical systems with AO can approach the theoretical diffraction limit. Appropriate for scientists, engineers, and technicians at the graduate level and above, this workshop combines lectures and hands-on laboratory activities covering the following topics:
