Paper Abstract

Active mirror components have permitted the realization of adaptive optical systems that improve astronomical seeing and can benefit optical communication. Future progress in adaptive optical systems will accelerate as compact, fast, and simple phase-compensating devices become available. We describe the development of a new form of membrane mirror array that, when wire-addressed or optically-addressed, becomes a key element in conventional or unconventional adaptive optical systems.
