Liquid crystal wavefront corrector (LCWFC) is one of the most attractive wavefront correction devices for adaptive optics system. The main disadvantages for conventional nematic LCWFC are polarization dependence and narrow working waveband. In this paper, a polarized beam splitter (PBS) based open loop optical design and an optimized energy splitting method was used to overcome these problems respectively. The results indicate that the open loop configuration was suitable for LCWFC and the novel energy splitting method can significantly improve the detection capability of the liquid crystal adaptive optics system.
