Perform at a higher level with the latest technology

Boston Micromachines Corporation has a legacy of providing solutions for the most demanding applications. Whether for laser communication or other light-shaping tasks, BMC deformable mirrors are ideal for a range of applications. BMC mirrors offer sophisticated aberration compensation in an easy-to-use package, and have the fastest response times with upgraded, high-speed drivers.

Continuous and Segmented Deformable Mirrors

Boston Micromachines Corporation has experience providing deformable mirror hardware for free-space laser communication applications to a host of companies and government organizations. BMC Standard Deformable Mirrors are advanced wavefront control devices with outstanding optical quality. BMC deformable mirrors consist of a mirror membrane supported by an underlying actuator array. Each actuator can be individually deflected by electrostatic actuation to achieve the desired pattern of deformation. Learn more about BMC's Standard Deformable Mirrors.
