Abstract
We describe the applicability of wave front correction by using a bimorph mirror in conjunction with a curvature sensor. We use Zernike polynomials to describe analytically the quality of the correction for atmospheric turbulence. The match is limited by boundary conditions of the mirror and by the discreteness of the electrodes. The correction is limited by coupling of lower and higher order Zernike polynomials and necessitates an interfacing computer between the wave front sensor and the bimorph mirror.
