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).
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.
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
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.
