Paper Abstract

The plenoptic wavefront sensor combines measurements at pupil and image planes in order to obtain wavefront information from different points of view simultaneously, being capable to sample the volume above the telescope to extract the tomographic information of the atmospheric turbulence. After describing the working principle, a laboratory setup has been used for the verification of the capability of measuring the pupil plane wavefront. A comparative discussion with respect to other wavefront sensors is also included.
