Wavefront-shaping devices incorporated into optical microscopy systems are capable of correcting sample-induced aberrations and recovering diffraction-limited imaging performance. The widespread dissemination and application of adaptive optical techniques, however, requires easy integration of adaptive optical modules, both in terms of hardware and software, into existing microscopes. We built an adaptive optical module with reduced complexity and simplified integration by utilizing a novel segmented deformable mirror and a standalone control software program. We demonstrated its ability to improve image brightness and resolution at depth in the mouse, zebrafish, and fly brains in vivo.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
