We received notice yesterday that an Adaptive Optics Optical Coherence Tomography device for retinal imaging built by Lawrence Livermore National Labs won a 2010 R&D 100 Award!
Because our Multi-DM is a central wavefront correcting component in the system. For those of you looking for nitty-gritty details, this is a single-deformable mirror system with a Badal optometer used for low-order corrections. The DM is 140 actuators with an aperture of 3.3mm x 3.3mm and stroke of 1.5 microns (wondering what these terms mean? Refer to this previous post for definitions and our website here for more on the mirror model). Check out the other award-winning inventions at the link below.
Congrats, guys and we’re looking forward to the awards dinner later this year!
