Upgrade of SPHERE at the VLT.

Non-linear control of adaptive optics for exoplanet imaging

Maximizing the contrast instead of minimizing wavefront aberrations.


ExoPlanet Imager and Characterization Instrument for the Extremely Large Telescope (ELT)

Solar Carbon Monoxide, Thermal Profiling, and the Abundances of C, O, and Their Isotopes

A solar photospheric ``thermal profiling`` analysis is presented, exploiting the infrared (2.3-4.6 ensuremathμm) rovibrational bands of carbon monoxide (CO) as observed with the McMath-Pierce Fourier transform spectrometer (FTS) at Kitt Peak, and …

Low-Cost Solar Adaptive Optics

First PC-controlled adaptive otics for a large solar telescope.

Smart Microscopy of Biological Tissues

Astronomical adaptive optics technology is used to dramatically enhance the spatial resolution of in-vivo two-photon microscopy of thick optical tissues.
