Paper Abstract

A standard multidither COAT servo system is used to control the surface figure of an 18-element deformable mirror located inside a CO2 unstable resonator. This adaptive laser resonator is capable of correcting for intra-cavity phase errors arising from disturbances in the laser medium or from distortions in the optical elements that form the laser cavity. This paper presents a brief discussion of the adaptive laser resonator as well as preliminary data on the correction of static and time-dependent resonator mirror tilt.
