Abstract

An optical testbed has been developed for the comparative analysis of wavefront sensors based on a modified Mach Zender interferometer design. This system provides simultaneous measurements of the wavefront sensors on the same camera by using a common aberrator. The initial application for this testbed was to evaluate a Shack-Hartmann and Phase Diversity wavefront sensors referenced to a Mach-Zender interferometer. This testbed has the added benefit of being able to train the deformable mirror against the spatial light modulator and evaluate its ability to compensate the spatial light modulator. In the paper we present some results from the wavefront sensors along with preliminary results from the wavefront corrective elements in the optical testbed.
