Paper Abstract

One of the major issues in new Extremely Large Telescopes is the phasing of their primary segmented mirror. A cophasing sensor is mandatory to achieve the ultimate resolution of the telescope. Phase diversity (PD) is a light-hardware cophasing technique. In this paper, we show that this technique is suited to segmented pupil instruments, such as the E-ELT.
