Software for Computing Zernike Characterization of an Optical Wave Front: TsunamiWave

Brief Description:

The software is used for the full characterization of an optical beam, by the computation of Zernike polynomials from wavefront sensor data.



For use in adaptive optics systems, such as scanning laser ophthalmoscopes, optical coherence tomography and astronomy.



The software provides a full characterization of the optical beam and is built to integrate with software used to control devices used in adaptive optics, such as wavefront sensors (Shack-Hartmann or other) with a digital camera, wavefront correctors (such as Boston Micromachines deformable mirror, or ImagineEyes deformable mirror), laser controllers (such as Thorlabs ITC-502 or other) and power meters (such as Newport 1930 or other).


Technology Status:

Software is being used by research teams in vision science.  Special arrangements are provided to research institutions which are members of the NSF-funded Center for Adaptive Optics.  The software can be used with TsunamiSLO (1-11030-08036), which is software to control the devices used in adaptive optics.
