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.
