Abstract
One of the factors that drives the performance of small inner working angle (IWA) coronagraphs is the quality of the low-order wavefront calibration and control. The uncorrected residuals scatter the starlight and produce intensity fluctuations, which as a result creates dynamic speckle noise in the focal plane. To improve post processing of the science images, the low-order telemetry of the residuals left uncorrected by the control loop can be used to calibrate the amount of starlight leakage at small angular separations. In this proceeding, we present the preliminary simulations of point spread function calibration using the Lyot-based low-order wavefront sensor measurements (tip-tilt errors only) for a vector vortex coronagraph.
