Paper Abstract

The Lick Observatory has been a pioneer in the development of innovative technology for astronomy particularly the development of adaptive optics and laser guidestar systems. The UCO/Lick Observatory Laboratory for Adaptive Optics (LAO) is actively pursuing development of new device technologies and techniques that will enable the next generation of adaptive optics systems for astronomy. The LAO has been developing, in coordination with industry, MEMS deformable mirrors for high speed high precision wavefront control. In this paper we will present the status of the development process and the goals for the future.
