In this work the Preisach classical and nonlinear models are used to model the hysteretic response of a piezoceramic deformable mirror for use in adaptive optics. Experimental results show that both models predict the mirror behavior to within 5% root-mean-squared (rms) error . An inversion algorithm of the Preisach classical model for linearization of the mirror response was implemented and tested in an open-loop adaptive optics system using a Shack-Hartmann (SH) sensor. Measured errors were reduced from 20% rms to around 3%.
