A 1-D deformable mirror which uses multilayered PVDF piezoelectric films as the actuators is proposed. First, a set of desired wave fronts is considered and the electrode shape of each film is designed so that the film generates one component of the set. In actual operation of the mirror a combination of the supply voltages is used to control the surface profile. The principle of construction and several basic experimental results are presented.
