Abstract

This paper presents the research on a high precision contactless actuation mechanism for an adaptive optics system. The mechanism is based on thermal expansion. The paper presents the research on linearity, the effect of superposition and the resolution of this actuation concept. Results of experiments carried out have nanometer resolution on shape and sub Kelvin resolution on temperature.
