Extreme Adaptive Optics

(high-performance version of AO system)

The term Extreme Adaptive Optics (ExAO) is applied to a new generation of high-performance Adaptive Optics systems. One motivation is for Direct Imaging of Extra-Solar Planets from the ground. New generations of adaptive optics instruments have been recently installed or are in development for the major large Optical/Infrared telescopes.
