The fifty engineered-manufacture adaptive optics systems developed for the Shen Guang Ⅲ (SGⅢ) facility, are introduced in this paper. The system technical scheme, together with the key components – the dismountable large aperture deformed mirror and the auto-alignment Shack-Hartmann wavefront sensor, are presented. The characteristic of the wavefront is measured and analyzed. The result of system correction shows that the adaptive optics systems improved the beam quantity of the SGⅢ facility, meet the requirement that the laser beam energy is higher than 95% in the 10-time diffraction limit zone, and ensured the laser transmission in the main amplification system of the SGⅢ facility.
