Features about 'ADAPTIVE OPTICS'

October 2011

Eyes on the sky

Greg Blackman discovers that building larger ground-based telescopes is pointless without adaptive optics

October/November 2010

Just to clarify

Greg Blackman on adaptive optics, devices originally developed in astronomy to improve the clarity of telescopes, but which are now finding uses in microscopy and optical tweezing

December 2007/ January 2008

Shape-shifting optics

David Robson brings the world of adaptive optics into sharp focus
