Top interview: Dr Patrick McCarthy – boss of the world's future largest optical telescope


Invention Time

The article goes from Adaptive Optics to CCD Sensors. Hmmm...

Conceptually, perhaps the adaptive optics should be integrated into the optical sensor.

Obviously there is technical challenge of integrating MEMS and optical sensors.

But equally obviously the performance, cost and logistical advantages are vast.

It's so obvious. Somebody must be working on this by now.
