Paper Abstract

Multimode Deformable Mirrors allow to superpose aberration modes up to high orders. The elasticity analysis leads to consider manily Clebsch-Zernike modes that belong to a sub-class of aberration modes. Theoretical results and associated geometries are derived for some single modes that allows to find degenerated solutions leading to a minimum set of applied external forces. Interferometric results from various Active Optics experiments are presented.
