abstract

We briefly recall the principle of the polychromatic laser guide star, which aims at providing measurements of the tilt of incoming wavefronts with a 100% sky coverage, We describe the main results of the feasibility study of this concept undertaken within the ELP-OA porgramme. We finally summarize our plans for a full demonstrator at Observatoire de Haute-Provence.
