The multi-conjugate adaptive optics (MCAO) technique allows to correct the vertical distribution of atmospheric turbulence, extending the isoplanatic angle and the sky coverage. In the Layer-Oriented (LO) approach, each wavefront sensor (WFS) is conjugated to a given atmospheric layer and is linked in closed loop to a deformable mirror, conjugated to the same height. This technique benefits from the co-adding of light coming from the guide stars which can be arbitrarily numerous and faint. In… Expand
