Off-axis aberration compensation of focusing with spherical mirrors using deformable mirrors

Abstract

We studied the possibility of focusing an ultra-intense laser beam with a spherical mirror instead of a parabolic mirror. To correct the induced wavefront aberrations, we used a deformable mirror in a closed-loop configuration with a Shack–Hartmann Wavefront Sensor (SHWS). We demonstrate in this paper that we were able to correct the aberrations induced by spherical mirrors down to an f-number equal to 3.3.
