Abstract : The need for a variety of deformable mirrors (DMs) is growing steadily as more applications are brought on line, components are more widely available and adaptive control evolves into an off-the-shelf item. While the bulk of the readily available systems are of the push-pull variety, curvature mirrors have much to offer in simplicity and efficiency. We will explore paths for development of these components.
