An adaptive optics (AO) system composed of multiple control levels based on the stochastic parallel gradient descent (SPGD) technique is discussed. Results of numerical simulations demonstrate that the convergence rate of 3-level SPGD wave-front correction increased by 23% compared with that of the usual SPGD wave-front correction.
