Adaptive optics (AO) is a technology used to improve the performance of optical systems by reducing the effect of wavefront distortions by correcting the deformations of an incoming wavefront, using special mirrors called deformable mirrors to compensate for the distortion. It is used in astronomical telescopes and laser communication systems to minimize the effects of atmospheric distortion. In microscopy, optical fabrication, and in retinal imaging systems it is used to reduce optical aberrations.

Adaptive optics systems generally consist of three subsystems, namely, a wavefront sensor to detect the state of the wavefront, a wavefront modulator to correct distortions in the wavefront, and a control system to link the two. The major strength of adaptive optics is its versatility of applications. The numerous emerging applications of adaptive optics technology act as a driving factor for this market.
