Abstract
By directly measuring the spherical wavefront near the focus, we demonstrated a approach to efficiently correct convergent spherical wavefront by installing a common small aperture deformable mirror (DM) in the middle of 0.89PW/29.0fs Ti:sapphire CPA laser chain. It is, to our knowledge, the first time attain the near perfect correction result in ultra-intensity laser system by correcting convergent spherical wavefront using a small aperture DM in adaptive optical loop. Finally the maximum peak intensity of 2.59×10^21 W/cm2 was obtained with an f/4 off-axis parabola at the output power of 0.89 PW.
