We present a method for correcting spherical aberrations in solid immersion microscopy through the use of a deformable mirror. Aberrations in solid immersion imaging for failure analysis can be induced through off-axis imaging, errors in lens fabrication or mismatch of design and substrate wafer thickness. RMS wavefront error correction of 30% is demonstrated in the case of substrate wafer thickness error.
