Project Description

Project Image   Wavefront Control for High Performance Coronagraphy on Segmented and Centrally Obscured Telescopes

Future large astronomical space telescopes will likely be segmented and centrally obscured. Our team will develop and demonstrate an accurate and efficient approach to measure fine cophasing errors in support of future high contrast imaging missions. This work is critical to understand how future large space telescopes can directly image and study habitable planets around nearby stars.
