Paper Abstract

Micromirrors arrays can be used to correct residual wavefront aberrations in certain optical systems. The aberration correction capability of arrays of piston-only and piston-tip-tilt micromirrors are compared. Sandia's micromirror fabrication program is discussed and two example systems are presented.
