Adaptive optics is a technique used to enhance the overall performance of optical systems. This is achieved by reducing the wave front distortions after performing corrections in the deformations of an incoming wave and using deformable mirrors to compensate the distortion. Adaptive optics is mostly used in astronomical telescopes and laser systems to minimize the effects of wave front distortions. Other uses of adaptive optics technology include microscopy, retinal imaging systems and optical fabrication to remove optical aberrations. Major function of adaptive optics is to improve image quality of a retinal image or other imaging systems including additive manufacturing systems or machine vision systems. The adaptive optics market is projected to witness significant growth due to factors such as increased expenditures in research and development activities especially in the optics industry as well as rising demand for adaptive optics enabled real-time product inspection techniques coupled with increased adoption of adaptive optics in biomedical sector.
 
Wave front distortion degrades the overall performance of optical systems and hence, adaptive optics systems are deployed to remove wave front distortions by correcting the deformations in the wave fronts. Adaptive optics functions on the principle distortion measurements and balances it using liquid crystal arrays. Moreover, the use of adaptive optics in machine vision and near eye displays, adaptive driver assistance systems in vehicles as well as mobile displays is a key factor fuelling the growth of global adaptive optics technology market.
