Adaptive optics technology is what that helps improve the performance of optical systems by decreasing the effect of wavefront distortions. The deformations in the incoming wavefront are corrected by adaptive optics by deforming a mirror to compensate the distortion. It is popular in astronomical telescopes and laser communication systems to negate the effects of atmospheric distortion. Sampling of optical wavefront sensor for wavefronts at nanometric resolution is a trend in this adaptive optics market. Wavefront sensors are an important part of most adaptive optics, which are used widely in systems ranging from optical coherence tomography (OCT), astronomical telescopes, and free-space communications to microscopy and ophthalmological instruments.
