Students, faculty and post doctoral scholars at UCLA are developing novel
methods for control of laser beams in applications including directed energy
systems and laser communications. Algorithms developed at UCLA for adaptive
and optimal control and filtering, as well as system identification, are being
used in adaptive optics and beam steering. UCLA’s high bandwidth controllers
correct both higher order wavefront errors and tilt jitter to levels not
achievable by classical beam control methods.
