Focused Delivery of Laser Energy to the Eye Using Adaptive Optics
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
The overall goal of this effort is to design and model an adaptive optic system that satisfies all of the technical, size, and cost requirements for diffraction limited delivery of laser energy to the retina through an aberration-corrected system. The adaptive optics (AO) system will also be designed such that it will be capable of imaging cells on the retina of a living eye in addition to delivering a laser pulse. Phase I will focus on proving feasibility through tightly coupled design and analysis of the complete AO system. Iris AO proposes to investigate different imaging modalities to find an optimized design. This will result in a new instrument that fulfills the requirements of the Air Force. Questions regarding overall system design, next generation deformable mirror design, efficient mirror control, and optical system integration will be answered. This will have widespread use for a host of biomedical imaging applications.
