Boston Micromachines' New Deformable Mirror To Enhance Retinal Imaging Systems for Earlier Detection of Leading Eye Diseases

via PRNewswire

"Commercial systems require low cost DMs. Never before has there been acompact, affordable DM available with this magnitude of resolution. Ours isthe only technology that meets the criteria of resolution, speed, size,stroke," said Bierden. "This will enable adaptive optics to become a realityfor commercial instruments."

About the Multi-DM

The Multi-DM is the flagship product in Boston Micromachines' award-winning suite of MEMS deformable mirrors, which are used to improve resolutionin microscopes, telescopes, and ophthalmic instruments. The popular andversatile Multi-DM offers sophisticated aberration compensation in an easy-to-use package. Typical applications include advanced retinal imaging systems,laser communication and beam forming.

At Photonics West

Boston Micromachines will be demonstrating the new Multi-DM at PhotonicsWest 2007 (January 20-25) in San Jose , California, at Booth 6180.

Availability The new Multi-DM is available immediately. About Boston Micromachines Corporation
