We have demonstrated improved free-space to single-mode fiber coupling via wavefront correction based upon an adaptive-optic mirror (AOM). By introducing AOM-correction paired with genetic-algorithm optimization, we have obtained 97.3±0.3% of the Fresnel-reflection-limited mode-coupling efficiency.
