Mathematical and computational modeling of a ferrofluid deformable mirror for high-contrast imaging

Abstract:

Deformable mirrors (DMs) are an enabling and mission-critical technology in any coronagraphic instrument designed to directly image exoplanets. A new ferrofluid deformable mirror technology for high-contrast imaging is currently under development at Princeton, featuring a flexible optical surface manipulated by the local electromagnetic and global hydraulic actuation of a reservoir of ferrofluid. The ferrofluid DM is designed to prioritize high optical surface quality, high-precision/low-stro...
