extreme adaptive optics

(ExAO)
(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.
