Phase I Projects

Photonics Spectra
Mar 2010
Boston Micromachines Corp. of Cambridge, Mass, a microelectromechanical systems-based deformable mirror provider, has received two Phase I contracts totaling about $200,000 from NASA’s Small Business Innovation Research Program to further space imaging research. The first project is to develop a compact, ultralow-power, high-voltage multiplexed driver suitable for integration with the mirrors in space-based wavefront control applications. The other is for an enhanced fabrication development process for the high-actuator-count deformable mirrors required for wavefront control in space-based high-contrast-imaging instruments.

GLOSSARY
