Abstract:

Intellite, Incorporated will team with the Optical Sciences Center at the University of Arizona to develop an adaptive optics system that will project a diffraction-limited spot on the retina by pre-correcting the laser beam for all significant optical aberrations of the specific eyeball under test. The system will use real-time feedback from a low-power laser reflected from the retina to measure the aberrations and modify the shape of a membrane deformable mirror. Furthermore, the proposed system will include a retinal imaging subsystem which will employ the same deformable mirror technology to produce a very high-resolution image of the retina and the laser spot. This imaging system can also be used to determine the nature and extent of retinal laser injuries occurring in the field. These functions will be integrated into a prototype design for an Aberration-Corrected Retinal Spot Projector and Imager (ARSPI) that will provide AFRL/HEDO the tools needed to advance the state of knowledge and understanding regarding laser safety.
