Paper Abstract

A theoretical description of Phase Diversity is done in some detail to lay the foundations for the experimental effort. The Phase Diversity algorithm is formulated in the context of nonlinear programming where a metric is developed and then minimized. This development will show how the Zernike coefficients can be solved for directly using nonlinear optimization techniques. Computer simulations are used to validate the algorithms and techniques. The results of the computer simulations are shown. Once the confidence of the algorithms and techniques are established in the computer simulations, they are used on actual laboratory data. Detailed discussion of the laboratory implementation will be described and the laboratory results will be shown.
