Cambridge, MA--Boston Micromachines Corporation (BMC), which produces MEMS-based deformable mirror (DM) products for adaptive-optics (AO) systems, announced today that Boston Micromachines' technology will be highlighted in at least 28 presentations and posters at the SPIE Astronomical Telescopes and Instrumentation conference held July 1-6, 2012 at the Amsterdam RAI Convention Center (Amsterdam, The Netherlands).

The 28 presentations and posters reflect projects that are using Boston Micromachines deformable mirrors in research such as high-contrast imaging, space-based imaging, and extreme AO. Conference sessions will be presented by Boston Micromachines' customers and collaborators.

"This conference brings together astronomical instrumentation experts from around the world," said Paul Bierden, president and co-founder of Boston Micromachines. "It is gratifying that our deformable mirror technology is being utilized by so many of these world-class researchers in their latest work."

Boston Micromachines has always been deeply involved in astronomical AO systems. In just two examples, the AO systems at Lick Observatory (Mt. Hamiton, CA) include devices made by Boston Micromachines, and in May of this year, the company was awarded a Phase II SBIR contract for $750,000 to support NASA's Exoplanet Exploration program.
