A bimorph mirror seems to be a low voltage, large strokes device which can be used as a correction mirror in an adaptive optics system for infrared applications. A few theoretical results are recalled and have been used to develop a numerical method to solve the displacements of a bimorph mirror supplied by a distribution of voltages. An example is given which involves seven electrodes ; comparisons with theoretical and other numerical results are achieved. Same paper has been presented during the SPIE's 90 Symposium on Astronomical Telescopes and Instrumentation for the 21st Century in February 1990.
