Software for Adaptive Optics: TsunamiSLO

Brief Description

Brief Description:

The software provides user-friendly control of devices needed for adaptive optics: wavefront sensor (Shack-Hartmann or other) with a digital camera, wavefront corrector (such as Boston Micromachines deformable mirror, or ImagineEyes deformable mirror), laser controller (such as Thorlabs ITC-502 or other) and power meters (such as Newport 1930 or other).

Applications:

For the control of wavefront sensors and aberration correction devices used in adaptive optics in scanning laser ophthalmoscopes, optical coherence tomography and other research applications of adaptive optics.

Advantages:

The software can be used with various hardware setups and is provided in both object and source code to allow users to modify it to perform customized experiments.

Technology Status:

Software is being used by research teams in vision science.  It is available for license at $10,000 per seat.  Special arrangements are provided to research institutions which are members of the NSF-funded Center for Adaptive Optics.  The software can also be used with TsunamiWave (2-11150-08017), which provides computation of the Zernike characterization of the optical wavefront.
