Abstract

We have built a 1000μm-diameter silicon nitride deformable mirror for focus-control applications, using micro-optoelectromechanical systems technology. We achieved variable focal lengths from 36 to 360 mm while maintaining zero primary spherical aberration, using a maximum control voltage of 100 V. Active control of spherical aberration of approximately two waves at 660 nm was demonstrated.
