Abstract:

Here we summarize principal results of our AFOSR supported research efforts. We have designed, build and implemented the first solar multi-conjugate adaptive optics MCAO system called Clear, which is the most unique generation of adaptive optics in Big Bear that is the latest fruit from a nearly two decade long collaboration between BBSO and the National Solar Observatory. Clear has three DMs conjugated to the ground, 3 km and 8 km respectively, to correct all turbulence in the field of view from the ground to 11 km above ground. The conjugation altitudes can be quickly changed if seeing changes.
