Paper Abstract

A new analytic approach for the description of deformable mirror facesheet deformation is presented. This new approach contains a high degree of physics fidelity, yet is relatively simple to implement and quick to use when compared with the equally-accurate finite element approach. Modeled physics include thin plate treatment for the deformable mirror facesheet and full mechanical coupling between the facesheet and the underlying actuators. Example influence functions for a circular DM are presented.
