Abstract
Semipassive bimorph mirrors for wavefront correction in imaging systems and high power lasers were developed and investigated. Different types of substrates and active piezoceramics materials were considered to fabricate temperature independent shape of the mirror surface and to maximize the sensitivity of the mirror. High reflectivity coatings for different wavelengths were studied. Bimorph mirrors were used for wavefront correction in living human eye and high-power solid state lasers.
