Adaptive Optics for Microscopy and Photonic Engineering
In this webinar hosted by the Holography and Diffractive Optics Technical Group, Martin Booth from the University of Oxford will review recent work on using adaptive optical elements, such as deformable mirrors and spatial light modulators, to increase the capabilities of laser micro fabrication and optical microscopy.

In particular, Prof. Booth will show how adaptive aberration correction and dynamic parallelization can improve precision and reliability and increase the accessible volume and speed of these systems. The applications of this laser writing technology range from quantum optics, through radiation sensing to security marking of diamond gemstones. In addition, the imaging methods include applications in cell biology, neuroscience and super-resolution microscopy.

Subject Matter Level: Intermediate - Assumes basic knowledge of the topic

What You Will Learn:
• Why we need adaptive optics and how it can improve the performance of optical microscopy and laser processing systems
• Recent work on adaptive microscopy, including methods and applications
• Recent work on adaptive laser processing, including methods and applications

Who Should Attend:
• Those interested in adaptive optics and its potentialities
• Postgraduates, researchers and engineers working in the field of microscopy, laser fabrication, etc., with no or basic knowledge of adaptive optics
