Adaptive Optics: Analysis, Methods & Systems (AO)

Adaptive Optics: Analysis, Methods & Systems (AO)

25 - 28 July 2016
Kongresshaus Stadthalle Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany

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, imaging through scattering and turbid media, and signal processing used in AO implementations as well as limitations and novel applications.
