The aim of the workshop is to discuss the use of novel adaptive optical elements, concepts and systems as they apply to high power lasers, medical devices, imaging, industrial lasers and microscopy. The International Workshop on Adaptive Optics for Industry and Medicine (AOIM) provides scientists and engineers from both industry and academia with opportunities to explore recent developments, current practices and future trends in adaptive optics and related fields. A key feature of this single-session meeting is the relaxed atmosphere with all participants encouraged to present and discuss their work either as a talk or a poster.

Topics will include:

  • Adaptive optical (AO) devices,
  • Wavefront sensing and measurement,
  • Aberration correction,
  • AO in imaging systems,
  • Digital holograpy in AOs,
  • Spatial light modulators,
  • Applications of AOs.
