This booklet treats the advance and alertness of adaptive optics for and medication. The contributions describe lately built parts for adaptive-optics structures comparable to deformable mirrors, wavefront sensors, and replicate drivers in addition to whole adaptive optical platforms and their functions in and medication. purposes variety from laser-beam forming and adaptive aberration correction for high-power lasers to retinal imaging in ophthalmology. The contributions are in line with displays made on the 4th overseas Workshop on Adaptive Optics in and medication which happened in Münster, Germany, in October 2003. This hugely winning sequence of workshops on adaptive optics all started in 1997 and maintains with the 5th workshop in Beijing in 2005.

Example text

The advantage of the modal approach is that low-order wavefront aberrations can be compensated in a continuous way using relatively small number of actuators. Recently the results of a liquid crystal modal wavefront corrector (LC-MWC) manufactured using glass-based technology were reported [4, 5]. Another technological option is represented by silicon technology; we discuss it in this paper. Silicon technology allows to form the required structure of actuators on the surface of a silicon chip using standard integrated circuit (IC) manufacturing processes.

Adaptive optics is applied in lasers, scientific instrumentation, ultrafast sciences, ophthalmology and material processing. For successful use in these applications, the deformable mirrors must be simple, inexpensive, reliable and efficient. Most of the currently used technologies based on piezoelectric, electrostrictive, electromagnetic and electrostatic actuation are rather expensive.

Has infinite resistance. The results in Fig. 5b show that 1–2% of non-functioning resistors can be tolerated. It means that the behavior of the resistive network as a whole can compensate defects of its separate elements. 4 Technology and Operation of a Liquid Crystal Modal Wavefront Corrector 31 Fig. 5. Rms correction error and correction efficiency of 36-channel LC-MWC vs resistors’ mismatch variance (a) and percentage of dead resistors (b) Silicon processes offer many options in constructing of resistors, where polysilicon resistors represent the most preferred choice for CMOS processes and diffusion resistors for bipolar ones [10].
