Paper Abstract

A discrete-actuator, deformable mirror has been characterized for use in the infrared spectral region. This device, with a clear aperture diameter of nine inches, achieves a surface deformation of 8.5 μm at 1500 volts. Conformity of the reflective surface with a desired figure has been determined by interferometric analysis and residual error computation for focus, tip, tilt and two orders of astigmatism.
