Focal Plane and non-linear Curvature Wavefront Sensing for High Contrast Adaptive Optics

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Wavefronts can be accurately estimated directly from either focal plane images or defocused pupil plane images, in schemes similar to phase diversity. These wavefront sensing techniques offers fundamental advantages over more traditional techniques for high contrast Adaptive Optics.
