Paper Abstract

Gruneisen has shown that small, light weight, liquid crystal based devices can correct for the optical distortion caused by an imperfect primary mirror in a telescope and has discussed the efficiency of this correction. In this paper we expand on that work and propose a semi- analytical approach for quantifying the efficiency of a liquid crystal based wavefront corrector for this application.
