Abstract
We propose one method for the phase alignment of segmented mirrors with piston errors. For this, we use the classical Ronchi test to observe fringes around of curvature center, after we take some lines on the Ronchi image for each segment mirror and obtain its intensity vs. pixels, to do the correlation and approximate the amount of pixels or piston displacement for the phase misalignment. Additionally, we get parabolic fit to find resolutions of sub-pixels. At the same time, we use the Shack Interferometer to observe behavior rings centered for this two segment mirrors to compare with the fringes produced with Ronchi test and to achieve resolutions of piston >= 24 (eta) m.
