Active Optical Systems (AOS) started in 2005 by developing the lowest-cost high-quality deformable mirror on the market. AOS then developed the low-cost wavefront sensor products on the market today by leveraging the advances in USB and FireWire (1394) interface cameras. By combining these technologies AOS developed both conventional wavefront-sensor adaptive optics systems and metric AO systems. The most recent work at AOS has been in demonstrating laser beam shaping systems and more conventional piezoelectric actuator plate-type deformable mirrors that exceed many of the specifications of any other vendor of this technology.
Today, AOS is a one-stop shop for virtually all adaptive optics needs. AOS has low-cost systems for research and educational institutions and high-end systems for industrial and military applications.
