Paper Abstract

Laserdot is a company which manufactures both Stacked Array Mirrors (SAM) and Bimorph mirrors (BIM) types. The first type is well known as the COME-ON plus type, working on European Southern Observatory (ESO) telescope, and the second one is working successfully on University of Hawaii bench, lead by Francois Roddier. As it does not yet exist exhaustive comparison between both mirrors LASERDOT finds interesting to compare them in full objectivity to know which kind of mirror is better dedicated to one or to the other application. Based on our recent works, the two components are compared and we give a few criterions which, depending on the application field and goals, make easier the choice between both technologies.
