Abstract

An adaptive mirror system whose surface deforms smoothly according to the desired curve has been made of polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) piezoelectric film and laminar glass plate. One surface of the glass plate was evaporated with silver, and this side was used as the mirror surface. A PVDF film, whose shape was determined by the deformation curve, was pasted tightly on the other surface. The mirror deforms smoothly along this curve with the application of a single voltage to the film. Holographic filter and feedback were also considered to improve the static and dynamic characteristics. Typically, deformation along ax2+ bx3 was obtained.
