This proceedings volume presents the very latest developments in non-astronomical adaptive optics. This international workshop, the sixth in a biennial series, was the largest ever held and boasted significant involvement by industry. Adaptive optics is on the verge of being used in many products; indeed, at this meeting, the use of adaptive optics in DVD players was disclosed for the first time.
