Using Site Testing Data for Adaptive Optics Simulations
The UBC Lidar operates at 50 Hz and took the data shown in red. The best fit to more than a hundred nights of data is shown as a straight line. Inputting this power spectrum into models of NFIRAOS focus and trombone control indicates a residual of 11 nm, which fits in the NFIRAOS error budget.
