Boston Micromachines' Deformable Technology Subject Of 11 Presentations At SPIE

Photonics West 2011

Boston Micromachines Corporation (BMC), a leading provider of MEMS-based deformable mirror (DM) products for adaptive optics systems, announced recently that Boston Micromachines technology will be highlighted in 13 presentations at the SPIE Photonics West conference held January 22-27, 2011 at The Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA. The presentations reflect the widespread use of BMC's deformable mirror technology in the fields of biological and retinal imaging, laser communications and astronomy. Conference sessions will be presented by a mix of Boston Micromachines' customers and staff. Session titles and research papers' authors follow below:
