Adaptive optics systems rely on a real-time control system which is responsible for receiving wavefront sensor information and computing and applying the...
TalkAO real-time control using open source and COTS components
Talk(1) Seismology of stars: problems and prospects (2) Asteroseismic CoRoT targets and the ground-based follow-up observations (3) Classical novae and cataclysmic variables: a modern perspective
The asteroseismic window of the CoRoT satellite mission aims at the monitoring of several types of pulsators along the Main Sequence. To optimise the science...
Talk(1) Understanding the formation of the central regions of disk galaxies (2) High angular resolution and high contrast to study exoplanetary systems
(1) In the last decades, numerous exoplanetary systems have been detected and studied with different techniques. Obtaining direct images of such systems is...

TalkA decadal survey of AO wavefront sensing detector developments in Europe, the OCAM revolution
The success of the next generation of instruments for 8 to 40-m class telescopes will depend on the ability of Adaptive Optics (AO) systems to provide excellent...
TalkA large spectroscopic survey facility at GTC for the next decade
In the next decade astronomers will attempt to constrain the nature of dark matter, dark energy and the (perhaps inflationary) processes which generated...
TalkA new 3DTV camera: demonstration and AO applications
The CAFADIS project has developed a new 3D camera based on the plenoptic concept. Phase and depth can be measured at the same time and in real time. In fact...
TalkA Technical Overview of the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT)
This presentation will describe the subsystems of the Thirty Meter Telescope Observatory (TMT), with a focus on the technical aspects. In general, large...
