Formation of the given laser beam intensity and phase is an important practical and scientific problem. Semipassive bimorph flexible mirror is one of the most widely used devices for this purpose. We present a novel approach of multilayer bimorph (multimorph) mirrors and a numerical model to simulate them, based on a variation approach of the finite elements method. The multilayer bimorph mirror consists of a substrate and a number of piezoceramic layers. The electrode grid of each layer is determined separately to reproduce low order aberrations.
