Mirao 52es and 52ep deformable mirrors
Mirao Deformable Mirror incorporates technology using 52 electromagnetic actuators, enough to precisely correct up to 6th order Zernike modes.

It also provides a 50μm PV deformation amplitude, making it a useful tool for various bio-imaging, microscopy and ophthalmology applications where you will need to correct large-amplitude aberrations.

For use over a long period of time, a high stabilization option is available : Mirao regulated.

You can also ask for a dust proof version : Mirao protected

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)
