Abstract

We present what we believe are the first experimental results obtained with modal linear predictive control of an adaptive optics system operating on sky at a visible wavelength on a 1.52-m telescope (Observatoire de Haute-Provence, France). This system yields substantially better results than optimized integral control: a 30% relative gain in Strehl ratio is measured, even in conditions of low wind speed.
