Boston Micromachines’ Michael Feinberg to Present at SPIE Optics & Photonics

Cambridge, Mass., August 04, 2011 – Boston Micromachines Corporation, a leading provider of MEMS-based deformable mirror (DM) products for adaptive optics systems,  announced today that it will be presenting a talk on “Advances in MEMS Deformable Mirror Technology for Laser Beam Shaping Applications” at the SPIE Optics & Photonics 2011 conference at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California, on August 21, at 8:30 AM. Michael Feinberg, Director of Product Marketing at Boston Micromachines will present.

Feinberg will report on how deformable mirrors have made advances in the past years to move the technology into a broader range of applications and uses. This includes the extension of the technology from traditional astronomical and biological imaging systems to the fields of beam control for laser communication and pulse shaping. In his talk Feinberg will describe ongoing work at Boston Micromachines and collaborators in the field of micromachined DMs for these applications. MEMS mirrors have been designed and fabricated for the use as a spatial and temporal shape controller for pulsed lasers. The design of the devices, specifications, and potential applications of this device will be discussed. Also discussed will be the implementation of metric based control of wavefronts and the characteristics of MEMS devices required for high speed, high precision control.
