Take the Low and High Roads to Imaging Success

Michael R. Feinberg and Paul Bierden, Boston Micromachines Corp.

Researchers worldwide have leveraged advances in microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) mirror technology by using adaptive optics to correct for wavefront aberrations caused by distortion. Now, the next generation of adaptive optics systems is using dual deformable mirror configurations to effectively compensate for a variety of wavefront aberrations. Researchers have opened possibilities in ground-based astronomy and biological imaging that previously were unimaginable. The right mirror for the job Deformable mirrors are advanced wavefront control devices that can change shape to...Read full article
