13 May 2011 Actuation for deformable thin-shelled composite mirrors
Author Affiliations +
Thin-shelled composite mirrors have been recently proposed as both deformable mirrors for aberration correction and as variable radius-of-curvature mirrors for adaptive optical zoom. The requirements on actuation far surpass those for other MEMS or micro-machined deformable mirrors. We will discuss recent progress on developing the actuation for these mirrors, as well as potential applications.
