Day 14 Summary
Today everyone but our PHD student (who has her own project on how heat is transferred with very high powered lasers) is working on a new deformable mirror that the lab has received. Currently my task is to look at the SNR from the results that we get from the mirror, but as I can't do that until we have the mirror set up, I am looking for more equations that could explain the SNR of the Shack-Hartmann sensor. Today ended up being another day looking at papers, but tomorrow I am going to be analyzing some baseline values for the signal to noise ratio. Tomorrow I will be looking at data from the sensors, so at the end of the day I started writing some preliminary code to look at tomorrow's data.
