In recent years the Burns group has developed four different adaptive optics systems. These include one capable of performing real-time polarimetric imaging of the human retina ; one optimized for small clinical instrumentation, developed in collaboration with Boston Micromachines Corp., and now being deployed at Joslin Diabetes Center; our main system which uses dual deformable mirrors to allow imaging individuals with large refractive errors over a large field of view; and a new system that allows precise measurement of blood velocity as well as using programmable apertures using DLP technology. This system, by having a final stage of the optics which provides almost 30 degrees of view of the retina, allows us to use clinical images taken with traditional low resolution devices such as the Heidelberg Spectralis, and quickly deploy our high resolution images to the regions of most interest.
Some have asked for more information on our system so I put in two files in the download section below. One is from the Frontiers in Optics meeting, 2017, which is an eposter in powerpoint (EPOsterFIO_2017.pptx). Simply start the slideshow and then click on interesting topics. The other is an SPIE paper ( Burns_Adaptive Optics Systems for Vision Science_Paper_1_1_2018 ).
