Construction of adaptive optics kit
AOKit Bio is a set of Adaptive Optics components, including a Shack-Hartmann wavefront sensor (among HASO family), a deformable mirror or phase modulator, as well as an adaptive optics software (SDK or software with user interface).

AOKit Bio allows you to build the adaptive optics system that best suits your individual needs.

Technology & features

Advantages of AOkit BIO


Choose your elements depending on your needs : AO loop can be integrated with different phase modulators, such as deformable mirrors or spatial light modulators (SLM)


Double the number of detected photons


Operate in both closed and open loop mode


Save time implementing your AO set-up

AOkit BIO possible components

About the software


For easy and fast implementation, we recommend using WaveTune, program controls all the elements with a simple user interface


For implementation of aberration detection methods into home-built software, we also provide WaveKit Bio, the Software Development Kit (SDK)
