AbstractThe adaptive optics system for the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) is the Narrow-Field InfraRed Adaptive Optics System (NFIRAOS). Recently, INO has been involved in the optomechanical design of several subsystems of NFIRAOS, including the instrument selection mirror (ISM), the beam splitter (NBS), and the source simulator system (NSS) comprising the focal plane mask (FPM), the laser guide star (LGS), and natural guide star (NGS) sources. This paper presents an overview of these subsystems and the optomechanical design approaches used to meet the optical performance requirements under environmental constraints.
