    Graduation Subject

    TU Delft & TNO  (Instrument Modeling & Control department–Delft, Netherlands)

    Adaptive Identification using Gradient Lattice Algorithms – Industry application in Adaptive Optics and High-Speed Milling’.

     

    M.Sc. Thesis supervised by both TU Delft and TNO. TNO has a laboratory set-up which simulates the lenses work of the extremely large telescope in Arizona, the MMT. My M.Sc. Thesis implements an adaptive time-series IIR predictor within the MMT’s adaptive optics control loop, in order to make-up for the processing time delays, using an innovative filter structure, the lattice filter. This work was part of a research topic at TNO to increase the image definition captured by the earth telescopes.
