In this paper, we present our novel concept of deformable mirror which enables a high density 2D actuation array through multiplexing. We investigate the resulting electrical coupling effect in the neighboring actuators through finite element analysis. These insights are used to consider the behavior within the least-square fitting performed to achieve wavefront error corrections.
