Abstract

For thermal deformable mirrors (DMs), the thermal field control is important because it will decide aberration correction effects. In order to better manipulate the thermal fields, a simple water convection system is proposed. The water convection system, which can be applied in thermal field bimetal DMs, shows effective thermal fields and influence-function controlling abilities. This is verified by the simulations and the contrast experiments of two prototypes: one of which utilizes air convection, the other uses water convection. Controlling the thermal fields will greatly promote the influence-function adjustability and aberration correction ability of thermal DMs.
