The design of a novel wavefront sensor is presented. The wavefront sensor is an extension of the classical Hartmann wavefront sensor. Analogous to the operation of the classical Hartmann wavefront sensor, each lenslet forms an image of the object, but shifted by an amount proportional to the average tilt across its subaperture. An optical information processor system is used to compute the location of each image relative to each other formed by the lenslets.
