Boston Micromachines Corporation has developed an enhanced deformable mirror capable of meeting the criteria for ultra-high resolution retinal imaging.

The new mirror, an updated version of the Multi-DM, offers increased stroke while maintaining the high resolution provided by the 140 independently controlled actuators. The mirror has a 3 kilohertz frequency which allows for real-time imaging with a 6 mm aperture suitable for dilated pupils. The new mirror also provides the wavefront amplitude correction required for older eyes by offering 6 microns of stroke, which translates to 12 microns of wavefront correction.

The new Multi-DM is available immediately.
