Welcome to Iris AO, Inc.
Iris AO, Inc. manufactures small scale, microelectromechanical (MEMS) based adaptive optics (AO) systems that offer radical advantages in cost, size, power consumption, durability and flexibility. Iris AO systems make AO practical for a host of new applications, including retinal and biomedical imaging, portable laser communications and horizontal imaging.
Our manufacturing process is designed from the outset to enable large stroke, low cost, small size and scalability to meet the demands of imaging applications. In addition to the deformable mirror technology, Iris AO manufactures calibrated high-voltage high-channel-count drive electronics, AO controllers, and AO development systems. Factory calibration makes Iris AO's systems easy to operate and ready to use out of the box, dramatically reducing development time.
- SPIE Photonics West 2014 Exhibition Feb. 4-6: Come see Iris AO high performance MEMS deformable mirrors in action in booth #6062 in the North Hall.
- Using a novel prototype instrument enabled by the PTT111 DM , researchers from the University of California Berkeley, Paris Observatory, and the SETI Institute distinguished and studied for the first time the individual stars of the binary star system Capella. The observations were made using the Fibered Imager foR Single Telescope (FIRST) mounted on the Shane 3-meter telescope at the University of California Lick Observatories in San Jose. Details are reported in the Astronomy and Astrophysics Journal.
