Adaptive Optics: Analysis, Methods & Systems (AO)

Adaptive Optics: Analysis, Methods & Systems (AO)

07 - 11 June 2015
Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel, Arlington, Virginia, USA

New developments in adaptive optics technology and its use in many application areas.

Optical systems, ophthalmology and microscopy, beam propagation, atmospheric correction and other technologies benefit from new developments in and novel applications of adaptive optics. AO investigates the commonality and possible synergies between the adaptive optics methods developed and used by various communities pursuing different applications. Topics include AO systems/component technologies, wavefront correction optics, control algorithms, and signal processing electronics used in AO implementations as well as limitations and novel applications.
