Paper Abstract

Adaptive optics technology is critical for many current and developing applications at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. In particular, most large laser systems, including those being developed for Inertial Confinement Fusion and Laser Isotope Separation, require adaptive optics to correct for internal aberrations in these high-power systems. In addition, adaptive optics can provide capability for both high-resolution imaging and beam propagation through the atmosphere. Requirements for laser systems, imaging and propagation applications are currently driving wavefront control technology toward increased spatial and temporal frequency capability, as well as reduced system costs. We will present recent progress in the development of micro-electro-mechanical deformable mirrors for adaptive optics applications.
