13 September 2012 System analysis and characterization of the FFREE bench
Author Affiliations +
Detection of exoplanets implies the measure of extremely weak signals, usually below intensity perturbations in the PSF caused by static aberrations. We have finished the construction of a new test bench called FFREE - Fresnel Free Experiment for EPICS. The scope of the FFREE experiment is the active speckles correction using off-line cancellation techniques: Electric Field Conjugation and Phase Diversity, in view of a future instrument EPICS for the telescope EELT (ESO). We will describe the system and discuss some characteristics like the chromatism and the environmental stability of the bench.
