Introducing our new AOSDK for adaptive optics!
Boston Micromachines is proud and excited to introduce its latest product software suite: The Adaptive Optics Software Development Kit, or AOSDK.
MEMS Deformable Mirrors vs. Liquid Crystal-Based Devices
Before Deformable Mirrors became popular in the Adaptive Optics industry, consumers would generally turn to liquid crystal-based device (LCOS) spatial light modulators to confront their challenges
FAQ: BMC Deformable Mirrors for Laser Applications:Power
About half of our customers use our deformable mirrors for laser applications, such as beam shaping or steering. We get a lot of questions pertaining to laser power and handling for both our deformable mirrors and modulators.
FAQ: BMC Deformable Mirrors: Windows
For those interested in using our deformable mirrors with laser applications, there are a few common questions which are asked in regards to the AR-coated window and if it is/can be removable.
FAQ: Flatness of BMC Deformable Mirrors
To continue addressing our FAQ’s, another recurring question BMC recieves is on the flatness of our deformable mirrors. The figure below shows an unpowered BMC DM and a flattened BMC DM.
FAQ: BMC Deformable Mirror Reflectivity
One question that tends to be asked quite often is the reflectivity our deformable mirrors can achieve. This depends on a couple of factors such as mirror coating, protective window AR coating and the wavelength of the light.
Reflective Optical Chopper Outperforms the Rest
As Boston Micromachines’ newest member, I would first and foremost like to introduce myself. My name is Angelica and I have joined the BMC team as their Marketing and Communications Associate
Fast and Precise Laser Pulse Compression with the Linear Array DM
Ultrafast lasers have been extensively used in ground breaking research including two Nobel Prizes. Applications within spectroscopy, photochemistry, laser processing and microscopy are widespread.
What Do You REALLY Want in a Deformable Mirror?
This past summer, Boston Micromachines Corporation conducted a survey of nearly 300 members of the business and scientific community to find out what features were valued in a deformable mirror for adaptive optics
