Adaptive Optics: Methods, Analysis and Applications

 

Adaptive Optics technology has many applications and this Topical Meeting looks at the multi-disciplinary aspects with an emphasis on investigating the commonality and possible synergies between the adaptive optics methods developed and used by various communities pursuing different applications.

This meeting concentrates on analysis, methods and systems and will focus on AO technology across multiple applications including astronomy, ophthalmology, vision science, microscopy, high energy beam control, and beam propagation.  Topics include AO systems/component technologies, wavefront correction optics, control algorithms, imaging through scattering and turbid media, and signal processing used in AO implementations as well as limitations and novel applications.
