Paper Abstract

A theory of deformation of the thin flat mirror, which vibrates harmonically in the direction of the normal to its surface, is shortly introduced in our work. Vibrating thin flat mirrors are used in various areas of science and engineering, e.g. in optical measurement systems. These mirrors can be generally deformed with respect to environmental conditions during measurements. The mirror deformation is closely related to the dynamic wave aberration of the wave-front, reflected from the mirror. The consequence of the wave aberration is a spatially inhomogeneous frequency shift of the light reflected from the vibrating mirror. The influence of the wave aberration on the frequency shift is studied theoretically and examples are given.
