Paper Abstract

This paper presents the optical design of the Dilute Aperture Visible Nulling Coronagraph Imaging (DAViNCI). DAViNCI's dilute aperture approach to the TPF-C extra-solar earth-like detection mission reduces cost and technical risk compared to other filled aperture approaches. DAViNCI has been studied in an ASMCS (Astrophysics Strategic Mission Concept Study) and is included within the ASTRO2010 Decadal review [1]. The DAViNCI team is led by Michael Shao (PI) of JPL.
