DEFORMABLE
MIRRORS

ALPAO Deformable Mirrors (DM) are based on continuous reflective surface motioned by magnetic actuators. They feature large strokes, high dynamic motion and an excellent optical quality to meet and exceed your requirements for fast and accurate wavefront correction.

In 2019, we released a brand new product : a Modal Deformable Mirror (DMM). It provides an excellent correction of the most common optical aberrations at large amplitude and with high precision. It was designed to be easily integrated into systems with an embedded electronics and a standard tube packaging. 

KEY FEATURES
HIGHLY DYNAMIC MOTION
• Settling time as low as 400µs at +/10%
OPTICAL QUALITY
• Active best flat as low as 7nm RMS
LARGE DEFORMATION

• Up to 90 µm optical deformation (peak to valley): to correct large amplitude aberrations

• Up to 5.0µm optical deformation (inter actuator): to correct high spatial-frequency aberrations

TECHNOLOGY

This adjacent animation shows our unique technology with membrane, coils, magnets and springs. By applying a current in the coils, the magnets are moved up and down to deform the membrane.
