Abstract
Pyramid wavefront sensor is a novel wavefront sensor, and its key element is pyramid-shaped refractor. The refractor is placed in the back focal plane of the first lens and its function in the optical system is divided the frequency spectrum, so the quality of vertex and surface roughness of pyramid are the essential points of the system, and high quality pyramid is more difficult to manufacture. In this paper, a set of two 2-side prisms, which is easily to fabricate, to substitute the 4- side pyramid is proposed and tested in experiment. The experiment shows that it is feasible.
