We manufacture custom plate-type deformable mirrors with a high reflectivity multi-layer dielectric coating or metal type coatings. We have built DMs with a few actuators and up to 1004 actuators. Our DMs have been used in laboratories, field testing environments, and military platforms.
The 21-actuator device, shown above, was designed for high reflectivity at 1064nm. A recent experiment showed that one of these mirrors withstood 120 kW CW laser radiation without any thermally induced distortion.

Laser Beam Shaping
Using our capability to interface WaveTrain to our adaptive optics hardware (membrane deformable mirrors and cameras), we demonstrated the ability to convert a Gaussian beam into different shapes using only 7 actuators. This type of beam shaping could be applied to a wide variety of commercial laser applications.
