In a recent interview with ElectroOptics magazine, Dr. Stefan Weber, CEO and Co-Founder of Phaseform, shared his thoughts on the future of photonics research, the challenges ahead, his personal journey, and the state of the industry. According to him, the next big thing in photonics research in his are is that
"...wavefront correction and adaptive optics (AO), will finally see affordable, easy-to-use, high-performance correction devices make their way onto every researcher’s optics table and become part of the design of many optical instruments"
Dr. Weber identifies three major hurdles to overcome: the need for hardware to be customizable and affordable, seamless integration of AO components into optical systems, and the need for user experience to be so effortless that the technology becomes virtually invisible to the end customer, in this case, microscopy users.
