Paper Abstract

An uncooled, 293 actuator deformable mirror design has been developed and two mirrors have been produced. This design is designated the High Performance Active Corrective Element (HiPACE) 293. The HiPACE 293 will provide substantial wavefront correction for large, multi-meter telescopes operating at science wavelengths of >= 2 micrometers while providing correction at shorter wavelengths for facilities with more moderate apertures.
