Paper Abstract

We present MICAO, an accessory which implements adaptive optics for microscopy. The device is designed to be plugged into the camera port of an inverted microscope to correct for the wavefront aberrations introduced by the system. It is compatible with most of the microscopes and can be easily installed in an inverted microscope imaging system. The design of the system allows working with almost all of the biological objectives. We also present the sensorless correction algorithm used to improve the image quality. Finally, we demonstrate the capability of the system to correct the aberrations present into a sample designed specially.
