Imagine Eyes' (Orsay, France) mirao 52-e Electromagnetic Deformable Mirror follows the success of the award-winning mirao 52-d, and offers several important new hardware and software features that promise to make it easier to integrate and use the device. Among the enhancements are:
- USB2 connectivity
- Space saving design
- Improved temporal behavior
- All-new API (application programming interface)
- Trigger output signal for TTL device synchronization
In addition, the unit's electronic driver unit has been totally redesigned. The instrument incorporates several important enhancements and, even more, is fully plug-and-play compatible via a standard USB2 interface.
For software, mirao 52-e comes with an all-new application programming interface (API) specifically developed to provide easy access to mirao's wavefront correction abilities and ensure backward compatibility as the product continues to evolve.
The mirao 52-e is CE marked and conforms to international electromagnetic and electrical safety standards.
"The unique design, unprecedented stroke and plug-and-play integration of mirao 52-e will facilitate its integration into numerous optical imaging modalities and significantly enhance visualization performance in retinal and other bioimaging applications," said longtime mirao user Pr. Wolfgang Drexler, whose team used mirao along with chromatic aberration correction to improve the resolution of their OCT configuration by a factor of 80.
The mirao products are marketed by Imagine Eyes for ophthalmic applications, and by its sister company, Imagine Optic, for other applications including bioimaging and lasers.
