Modal Deformable Mirror

Share this on social media:

Alpao has released a Modal Deformable Mirror (DMM) for industrial applications, designed to make adaptive optics (AO) much simpler and cheaper. It provides a correction of the most common optical aberrations at large amplitude and with high precision.

With seven or eight control channels, each of them corresponding to one optical mode (e.g. focus, astigmatism), the control is as simple as auto-focus. It was designed to be integrated into systems with an embedded electronics and a standard tube packaging. DMM can also be customised according to customer’s needs (larger stroke, different pupil diameter or coating) to fit with the industrial application.
