The Adaptive Optics Laboratory at the University of Victoria (Canada) and the Subaru Telescope NAOJ (Hawaii) are collaborating to develop a simple method allowing open-loop control of MEMS deformable mirrors. This method consists of an iterative algorithm based on 3 simple equations and 4 constants. The 4 constants are different for each mirror, therefore a characterization step is necessary to evaluate their values for a given mirror. In this paper we describe the model and the 3 equations it relies on. We also propose a characterization methodology and finally present the preliminary results respectively obtained on Victoria and Subaru test beds.
