Abstract

A study has been made of a Shack-Hartman sensor utilising a Charge Coupled Device (CCD) array and of an alternative approach to estimating the centroid. This is based on modelling the Point Spread Function (PSF) by a Gram-Charlier type expansion type, we will present results for different levels of Kolmogorov turbulence with and without CCD read noise. Our high-fidelity computer simulation demonstrates that more accurate estimation of the PSF centroid may be achieved at low light level as compared to the standard center of gravity estimation.
