Paper Abstract

Closed-loop adaptive optical correction using a deformable mirror based on the total internal reflection (TIR) from an electrostatically deformed liquid-air interface was performed on a collimated beam of a HeNe-laser that was aberrated by a rotating phase disk. The frequency response of the system was measured and the influence of liquid surface motion in absence of external optical aberrations on the liquid mirror was characterized. The performance of the AO system was determined for static and dynamic aberrations for various sets of system parameters.
