Paper Abstract

The wavefront sensor is an important part of active control for an Active Optics System (AOS). The wavefront sensibility of a beam compressor is experimentally tested on the 2.1m telescope at SPM. This is a simple wavefront sensor based on the wave propagation equation. A qualitative analysis of the experimental data is presented. It is concluded that the beam compressor has enough sensibility to be used as a wavefront sensor for the AOS.
