“A broad and comprehensive introduction to the use of adaptive optics in biological microscopy … provides a much-needed entrée to the field and includes not only the basics and general principles, but also discussion of practical implementations and key application areas.” —From the Foreword by Professor Austin Roorda, University of California, Berkeley, and Professor Claire Max, University of California, Santa Cruz

Written by an international team of leaders in the field, this comprehensive reference presents a complete overview of the core principles, state-of-the-art methods, and emerging applications of adaptive optics in biological imaging. It emphasizes the use of adaptive optics to correct wavefront aberrations caused by light propagation in biological samples. Accessible to readers without a background in optics, the book describes the fundamentals, components, and systems used in adaptive optics. It also covers optics systems as well as newer applications in this rapidly expanding field. • Focuses on applications in biological imaging • Provides the only comprehensive treatment of the principles, methods, and applications of adaptive optics in microscopy for biological imaging • Shows how to use adaptive optics in the microscopy of biological samples to improve image quality and provide deeper tissue imaging • Discusses how the wide availability of MEMS components has enabled applications of adaptive optics in rapidly developing areas
