Abstract

This paper presents an optical stabilization system based on deformable mirrors (DMs) for retina-like sensors. This system achieves image stabilization by changing the reflective plate of the DM’s compensating tilt angle. The mathematical model is constructed with relative parameters, and the simulation experiments and parameter analysis are discussed to verify the system’s reliability. The experimental results show that this system achieved optical image stabilization. The maximum relative error of the compensation angle is 8.78%. The system is close to the diffraction limit, and the distortion is less than 0.33%. This study presents an image stabilization system and offers possible improvement in the aberrations in the system, which will provide great support to retina-like sensors.
