Adaptive Optics Associates built the 37-subaperture Shack-Hartmann wavefront sensor using a 64 X 64 pixel CCD array built by MIT/LL. The array was reported to have seven electrons read noise at 1200 fps. The controller used a 160 MFLOP Mercury VME board with four Intel i860 chips. The closed-loop bandwidth was reported to be 30 Hz. The Lick adaptive optics system was the first commerciaVuniversity observatory to use a sodium guide star (31). The LLNL laser guide star is a frequency doubled Nd:YAG operating on the Na line (589 nm), with 18W power, 100-ns pulses, ll-kHz rep rate, and projected out of a 30-cm projection telescope.
