Conclusions and Perspectives
Magnetic fluid deformable mirrors (MFDMs) have been proposed recently as a novel type of wavefront correctors for adaptive optics (AO) systems, which offer cost and performance advantages over existing wavefront correctors. In this chapter, the developments presented in this book are first summarized, and then further improvements in MFDMs that need to be addressed before they can be finally used practically in AO applications are discussed.
