This webinar, hosted by the OSA Applications of Visual Science Technical Group, will give an overview of adaptive optics applied to vision science and will be presented by three speakers from the field. The topics will include:
Introduction to Adaptive Optics (Dr. Karen Hampson, University of Oxford)
• What is adaptive optics?
• Why we need adaptive optics (ocular aberrations)
• How it works
• How to design (layout) of a basic system
Adaptive Optics for Testing Vision and Visual Function (Dr. Silvestre Manzanera, Universidad de Murcia, Spain)
• Typical layout of an adaptive optics system for testing vision and visual function
• Selecting the display for the stimulus
• What we can learn about vision using adaptive optics
Adaptive Optics for Retinal Imaging (Dr. Laura Young, University of Oxford)
• Typical layout of an adaptive optics system for retinal imaging
• Selecting the retinal imaging camera
• What we can learn about the retina using adaptive optics
What You Will Learn:
• You will learn the basics of adaptive optics and what we can learn from it about the visual system.
Who Should Attend:
• This webinar is recommended for graduate students and researchers who are new to the field.
