13 August 1993 Bimorph mirror: theoretical limits and technical aspects
Author Affiliations +
A thin bimorph adaptive mirror can correct corrupted wave fronts when measured by a wave front curvature sensor. The correction is given analytically in terms of Zernike polynomials. Boundary conditions of the mirror, discreteness of the electrodes, and coupling between low and high order Zernike polynomials limits the fit, especially for atmospherically corrupted wave fronts.
