Abstract
New applications of adaptive optics, especially in the potentially mass markets such as laser optics, imaging and medicine, require development of new components with high quality and low price. These requirements are equally applicable to wavefront sensors, wavefront reconstructors and wavefront correctors. The whole concept of adaptive optics as a science-intensive technology needs to be altered, to facilitate low-cost and service-free deployment and user-unaware exploitation. As an example of a technology, that has a good low-cost potential, we describe the technology of piezoelectric deformable mirrors with actuators based on the transversal piezoelectric effect, as an inexpensive alternative to the deformable mirrors with stacked actuators.
