Abstract
Electro-static membrane mirrors have been in use for over ten years in active and adaptive optics applications in industrial, academic, and research systems. We introduce a deformable membrane mirror produced from commercial off the shelf (COTS) pellicle membranes. This greatly reduces production costs of the device. The device can be produced in up to 3 inch formats without large static aberrations. The mirror is capable of closed loop bandwidth in excess of several hundred Hz. Measurements of the device influence functions will be presented along with results of closed loop real time control performance measurements.
