22 November 2000 Novel spatial light modulators for active and adaptive optics
Author Affiliations +
We present here results of laboratory and field experiments using two novel active optic elements, an electro-static membrane mirror, and a dual frequency nematic liquid crystal. These devices have the advantage of low cost, low power consumption, and compact size. Possible applications of the devices are astronomical adaptive optics, laser beam control, laser cavity mode control, and real time holography.
