Post-Doc position - LAM Marseille France - Pushing Wide-Field Adaptive Optics toward visible wavelengthsClosing date: 2016-05-01
Contact: Benoit Neichel
Current Adaptive Optics systems are limited to corrections delivered in the Near Infra-Red. Pushing the corrections toward visible wavelengths, providing diffraction-limited images on medium field-of-view (15 to 30arcsec), and with reasonable sky coverage would represent a unique science niche for 8m telescopes in the ELT era. It would also represent an ideal replacement for HST, and cover a parameter space that would not be covered by any of the ELTs first light instruments. The post-doctoral work proposed will be at the center of these developments.
