Xinetics to collaborate with US Air Force on adaptive optics

Aug. 1, 1996
The Air Force Phillips Laboratory (Kirtland AFB, NM) has signed a research agreement with Xinetics Inc. (Littleton, MA) to develo¥a novel deformable mirror for adaptive-optics applications. The design of conventional deformable mirrors precludes repairs to individual actuators. Over the six-month agreement, Xinetics and Phillips Laboratory engineers will build a new type of mirror that features a removable reflective surface held in place by glue that can be heat-softened, allowing access to
