In this work we present a simulation of the wave-front sensing of the active primary mirror support for the 2.1-m telescope of the San Pedro Mártir's Observatory by Non-Linear Curvature Wave-front Sensing. The active cell is going to be tested by changing its actuator values. In each active cell state, defocused pupil images from both sides of the focal plane will be simulated and phase retrieval will be performed. The algorithm employed to reconstruct the wave-front will be discussed, as well as the sensitivity obtained in our simulation.
A wave-front coded imaging system is an optical-digital method for aberration control. Wave-front coding technology incorporates an aspheric element in the optical system in order to capture a coded image and by digital processing decode it to obtain the final image. The WFC system is very insensitive to defocus-like aberrations and thereby becomes a tool in the aberration balancing for telescope systems. We propose WFC technology to be implemented in a two spherical mirror telescope. In this work we present the design and simulation of the proposed telescope, trade-offs encountered in the design process and aspects of the image restoration.
