Paper Abstract

Efficient propagation of light through the atmosphere requires the compensation of phase distortions induced by the atmosphere, thermal lensing, thermal blooming, or aero-optics. We have developed a deformable mirror engineered to compensate these aberrations while reflecting high power radiation with minimal heating and thermally induced distortion. We present the results of a multi-year effort to address many of the challenges with existing state-of-the-art designs while reducing cost, complexity, and manufacturing time.
