Iris AO Adaptive Optics Kit Corrects Monochromatic Aberrations

Versatile kit ideal for exploring adaptive optics

2/9/2016, Barrington, NJ USA   —

Edmund Optics® (EO), the premier provider of optical components, introduces the new Iris AO Adaptive Optics Kit. This versatile kit is an image-based adaptive optics solution, which includes a MEMS-based deformable mirror, optics, optomechanics, camera and GUI software.

Deformable Mirror design features 37 hexagonal segments controlled by 111 acutators

Iris AO Deformable Mirrors

The Iris AO Adaptive Optics Kit includes an Iris AO Deformable Mirror. The DM features 111 actuators, with 37 hexagonal piston-tip-tilt (PTT) segments using three actuators each. The mirror is coated with a highly reflective protected silver coating. The Iris AO Deformable Mirrors included in this kit are also sold seperately.

Deformable mirror controller corrects or introduces aberrations

The Iris AO Adaptive Optics Kit is an excellent choice to explore wavefront sensorless adaptive optics. The Iris AO Adaptive Optics Kit includes the Iris AO PTT111 DM and controller with GUI driven software and an easy to use USB interface to introduce or correct monochromatic aberrations. Precision linear open-loop PTT positioning enables high-performance adaptive-optics corrections. Intuitive mirror positioning using PTT values or Zernike coefficients and a USB interface mean you can set precision mirror shapes onto the mirror. The Iris AO PTT111 DM can also be used for testing and development of beam splitting, beam shaping, and other complex algorithms on a user-friendly, easy-to-assemble test bed. The system is compatible with Windows™ 7 and 8 (32-/64-bit) operating systems. The RoHS compliant Iris AO Adaptive Optics Kit is in-stock and available for immediate delivery for fast turnaround and excellent value.
