LBT Adaptive Secondary
We designed and built this deformable mirror for the LBT together with our partners Microgate and INAF. The first unit was commissioned during 2010 and already delivered unprecendented AO performances. The second unit has been installed on the telescope in summer 2011 too.

The main features of these units are hereafter listed:
  • diameter = 911mm
  • # of actuators = 672
  • settling time < 1.5 ms
After the two LBT units we built a clone one with 585 actuators to be installed on the Magellan telescope. This unit was accepted in 2010 as well by Steward Observatory and it is now waiting its final optical calibration before being shipped to the site.
