    Abstract

    Complete model of a multiactuator flexible mirror,made as a thin plate with discrete piezo-actuators is described. Experimental results validated the efficiency of proposed model are presented.New concept of adaptive optical system with flexible mirror and linear wavefront sensor is developed.
