Projektbeschreibung

OptoFluidic Adaptive Optics (OFAO) envisions an unprecedented refractive adaptive optics system featuring a reconfigurable freeform membrane as the spatial phase modulator. Employed primarily in ground-based telescopes for atmospheric turbulence compensation, adaptive optics (AO) has long proven to be a costly yet powerful enabler of diffraction limited imaging through turbulent media. A plethora of life science microscopy methods both in confocal and full-field modalities have also adapted AO in recent years to enhance resolution as well as contrast in deep tissue imaging. Despite very promising results, widespread acceptance of AO is impeded primarily by the excessive cost. We propose a completely new approach to adaptive optics, which has the potential to expand the application area of AO at an affordable cost. OFAO is active in the following topics: * Adaptive refractive surfaces capable of arbitrary wavefront correction * Sensorless wavefront estimation using information inherent in images * Control algorithms and electronics for real-time operation in life-science applications
