Paper Abstract

A shape of a wave-front that is transformed by an optical element (or system) is changed depending on physical and geometric properties of such a system. This fact can be used in many areas of science and technology. For example, various applications can be found in adaptive optics where active optical elements are used for wave-front correction. Our work presents a detailed analysis of aberration properties of a simple deformable planar mirror from both the aspect of modeling the shape of reflecting surface of the mirror and the mechanisms that enable to reach this desired shape for correction of spherical aberration. Finally, a simple experimental device for practical realization of the optical system for partial wave-front correction is proposed.
