Paper Abstract

In this article we report the results of a comprehensive simulation program aimed at investigating coronagraphic capabilities of SHARK-NIR, a camera selected to proceed to the final design phase at Large Binocular Telescope. For the purpose, we developed a dedicated simulation tool based on physical optics propagation. The code propagates wavefronts through SHARK optical train in an end-to-end fashion and can implement any kind of coronagraph. Detection limits can be finally computed, exploring a wide range of Strehl values and observing conditions.
