Paper Abstract

This paper describes deformable membrane mirrors designed for focus control and aberration compensation in vital microscopy and shows microscope images obtained using these mirrors. The mirrors are metalized polymer membranes ranging from 1-3 mm in diameter using the photo-cured epoxy SU-8 2002, constructed using a die-bonding process. They are electrostatically actuated using three concentric electrodes to provide large displacement while minimizing spherical aberration.
