Abstract

The Sun is an ideal target for the development and application of Multi-Conjugate Adaptive Optics (MCAO). A solar MCAO system has being developed by the Big Bear Solar Observatory team and European partners for the 1.6m diameter New Solar Observatory, with the purpose of extending the corrected science field of view to 1Arcmin. A detailed optical system design and optical performance for such a system is presented and discussed here. The numerical simulations, which fed this optical system design are presented in more details in Langlois et al [1] in this conference.
