Abstract
In order to improve the imaging resolution of a segmented telescope, the co-phasing error of segmented mirrors must be accurately measured and corrected. Phase Diversity (PD) refers to a technique of image-based wavefront sensing, and it could estimate both the unknown phase parameters and the unknown object. In this paper, the Phase diversity is proposed to measure the co-phasing errors and retrieve the unknown object for segmented mirrors, and the performance of this technique is simulated for point source and extended source. The simulation results demonstrate that the Phase Diversity Wavefront Sensor (PD WFS) can synchronously measure the piston errors of multi-segmented mirrors and the quality of the retrieved image is much better than before. The Phase Diversity Wavefront Sensor can be used to measure the co-phasing errors and retrieve the unknown object for the segmented mirror system.
