We have a new version of the software avaliable now with several speed and interface improvements. For current customers, the latest version of the AOS software is available at https://sp.aos-llc.com/Sites/Portal under Downloads-Export Controlled-Software-Current. To gain access to this SharePoint site, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
AOS is planning a new version of the software with improved external interfaces and more deterministic operation first quarter 2013. This upgrade will enable AOS to support more external software and more cameras. Users will be given a hardware key instead of the software keys provided in earlier editions of the software.
Jonathan Tesch and Steve Gibson published a wonderful paper on aero-optical adaptive optics in JOSA A (Jonathan Tesch and Steve Gibson, “Optimal and adaptive control of aero-optical wavefronts for adaptive optics,” J. Opt. Soc. Am. A 29, 1625-1638 (2012)).
Today we officially released our new beam-tube packaging for the membrane DMs. The first released product is a MDM1-32S-4 (32 actuators in a squared grid). The “-4” suffix indicates the new beam-tube packaging.
We can now support any AVT camera (firewire or Gigabit ethernet) in our software and can make any AVT camera into a wavefront sensor.
Based on customer input, we have added Zernike subtraction, image zooming, far-field spot calculation, and better Atmospheric Characterization into our Shack-Hartmann Wavefront Sensor software. These features are either in our software now or will be in the next release.
We have just released a new video on active flattening a membrane DM using the new Zernike subtraction feature.(http://www.aos-llc.com/support.shtml).
AOS has released three new application notes on error rejection, beam quality metrics, and analysis of Kolmogorov turbulence! (http://www.aos-llc.com/support.shtml).
