Abstract
Micromachined deformable mirrors are being commercialized by the contractor and applied to DOD related projects due to their light weight, fast response, small size, and inexpensive fabrication costs. During Phase II, the contractor and university teamwill demonstrate a novel projection system incorporating a micromachined deformable mirror, and develop a complete adaptive optics system based upon the deformable mirror projection system. Applications for this technology include free spacecommunications between satellites, and phase coupling and projection of multiple fiber laser sources. Integration of a micromachined deformable mirror into a rugged optical system will enable many new applications, including free space communications forinternet connections in urban areas where fiber links are cost prohibitive.
