Context. Asteroseismology has great potential for the study of metal-poor stars due to its sensitivity to determine stellar ages. Solid detections of oscillation frequencies in stars with well constrained fundamental parameters, combined with a known rotation period, should significantly advance our understanding of stellar structure and evolution in… (More)
We report on real-time, time-gated, direct imaging through scattering media with an attenuation of 14 mean-free paths by use of third-harmonic generation in the eye-safe and telecommunication-compatible near-IR spectral region (1550 nm).
We have designed and built an electrostatically deformable membrane mirror with simple bias and driver electronics to evaluate its suitability for a curvature-sensing adaptive optics system. It has a 100-mm-diameter aluminized nitrocellulose membrane, with 31 actuators arranged concentrically. The unit operates at atmospheric pressure with a high bias… (More)
