Design of deformable mirrors for high power lasers

  • Stefano Bonora (a1), Jan Pilar (a2) (a3), Antonio Lucianetti (a2) and Tomas Mocek (a2)
Abstract

We present the workflow of the design, realization and testing of deformable mirrors suitable for high power diode pumped solid-state lasers. It starts with the study of the aberration to be corrected, and then it continues with the design of the actuators position and characteristic. In this paper, we present and compare three deformable mirrors realized for multi-J level laser facilities. We show that with the same design concept it is possible to realize deformable mirrors for other types of lasers. As an example, we report the realization of a deformable mirror for femtosecond lasers and for a CW $\text{CO}_{2}$ laser.
