Aluminum-Polymer Deformable Mirror using Electromagnetic Actuators for Spatial Light Modulation


This paper presents a low operational voltage and low current Lorentz force deformable mirror for adaptive optics. The system consists of a 12 × 12 mm2 Al/SU-8/Al mirror attached to a 5 × 5 actuator array. The actuators are... [ view full abstract ]
