Paper Abstract

At present, the large telescopes use segmented primary mirror. Segmentation and edge effects are closely related to system image quality. Generally there are four kinds of edge effects including gaps between segments, turned down/up segment edges, piston and random tip-tilt errors. This paper concentrates on a primary mirror structure with a central octagonal segment and eight marginal approximately annular-sector segments. We will give a Strehl Ratio formula that contains edge effect parameters. In addition, both the derivation and simulation are based on the assumption that edge effects exist uniquely.
