Paper Abstract

A hardware demonstration has been performed in which a nominally flat, complex aspheric mirror is used to correct the high-order aberrated wavefront error of an off-axis parabolic mirror to 0.5 nm rms. The purpose of the project is to demonstrate the viability of using a static, aspheric optic to correct a telescope wavefront to the degree needed for detection of extra-solar Jovian planets. The demonstration procedure and test results are presented.
