The Phase-Induced Amplitude Apodization Complex Mask Coronagraph (PIAACMC) is a promising corona- graphic device for direct detection of exoplanets with complex segmented telescope apertures. This concept features the bright idea of generating a pupil apodization by reflection on two mirrors whose wavefront maps are specifically optimized, and a complex focal plane mask. In this paper, we report on the design, specifications, and manufacturing of such a coronagraph for the SPEED facility (Segmented Pupil Experiment for Exoplanet Detection) struggled for deep contrast at small angular separation with complex telescope aperture.
