Translation of adaptive optical microscopy expertise to the commercial domain

Objective

Adaptive optics (AO) is an important technology for high-resolution microscopy that overcomes imaging problems when focusing inside biological specimens. Through the ERC Advanced Grant AdOMiS we have developed and experimentally validated new, broadly applicable AO tools that make integration of this technology more practical for a range of different microscopy techniques. We have also accumulated significant know-how about effective implementation of this technology. The challenge now is to translate these laboratory-based methods and know-how outside the academic research environment. This project will facilitate access to the products of our research to potential research and commercial adopters so that they can successfully deploy our AO methods in their systems.
