Paper Abstract

We present the latest developments on the concept of space adaptive optics coronography. We review the principle of deformable mirror used to suppress the scattered light in a 'dark hole' region around the optical axis. We describe the main limitations of this concept. A description of the experiment which has been built at JPL and its first results are given.
