High Speed Optical Wavefront Sensing with Low Cost FPGAs

This paper outlines a study into deployment of a parallel processing scheme on an FPGA to meet the needs of high bandwidth processing in adaptive optics wavefront sensing. By exploiting a multi-stage pipeline approach we have significantly reduced the processing time needed to perform the wavefront sensing operation. The paper details the design, implementation, and performance testing results of the proposed FPGA-based wavefront sensing system.
