Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

9 Scopus citations


The analysis of a plane symmetric, four-mirror optical system that has a real pupil to accomplish passive or active wavefront correction is presented. Several system solutions are possible, but the emphasis of the analysis is given to those that might simplify the fabrication of a large telescope.
