SuTrA

SuTrA, the Simulation Tool foR Adaptive optics, provides efficient tools to simulate a wide range of adaptive optics systems at various scales. General algorithmic design has been inspired by core C codes of YAO, a simulation tool developed by François Rigaut. Main features include :
  • on-line multiple layers Kolmogorov turbulence generation at various altitudes
  • multi-directional raytracing through turbulence
  • multi-directional Shack-Hartmann (SH) spots computation using either natural or laser guide stars
  • centroiding on SH spots using various algorithm : center of gravity (COG) , weighted COG, thresholded COG, brightest pixels COG
  • Least square command strategy
  • Realistic piezostack deformable mirror model

The following wiki pages will guide you through the installation and use of the simulation tool.
