Research activity

Since 2004 I'm working on the development of high order Adaptive Optics systems for ground based telescopes.
I'm specialized in natural guide star AO systems and pyramid wavefront sensor.

The main projects I'm currently involved are:
    SOUL project SOUL: Single conjugated adaptive Optics Upgrade for the LBT Logo

      MAVIS project MAVIS : MCAO Assisted Visible Imager and Spectrograph for the Very Large Telescope ESO

    GMT logo  NGWS: the Natural Guidestar Wavefront Sensor for the Giant Magellan Telecope  

The main past projects:

  FLAO: First Light Adaptive Optics of the Large Binocular Telescope 

  AO system for the Large Binocular InterferometerLBTI Logo (collaboration with the Arizona University - USA)
  Magellan Adaptive Optics system Magao Logo (collaboration with the Steward Observatory - USA)

  High Order Testbench (Opticon - JRA1 collaboration with ESO)

  Active Phasing Experiment (WP4600 ELT Design Study - FP6)
