Abstract
Adaptive optic requirements for instrumentation such as EAGLE for the European extremely large telescope present an enormous challenge to deformable mirror technology. We have developed a unique approach using fabricated arrays of multilayer actuator technology to address the requirements of actuator density and deflection. Our programme of work has uncovered a novel approach which has led to a built in test capability. We will present the outcomes of our work which we believe will lead to a compact deformable mirror.
