Paper Abstract

Phase-contrast wave front sensors that use a pixilated liquid crystal device as the Zernike filter have been demonstrated successfully in several laboratories. These systems are inherently very large. This paper presents design considerations and test results for a small, low-cost, portable, phase-contrast wave front sensor developed at New Mexico State University (NMSU). This sensor has measured wave fronts of optical systems and components in different laboratories.
