This DARPA funded workshop, scheduled for June 26-27, 2013,, explores the refractive properties of ionized gases as an adaptive optics element, which is intended to replace such approaches as mechanical deformable mirrors that are slower, more fragile, and more expensive. The applications of plasma range from airborne laser communications to bio-medical. Attendees will include industry, government agencies, universities, and Notre Dame faculty and staff.
