Paper Abstract

Into space, stars are the most common source of light. Planets, comets and other types of rocks reflect the incoming light from near stars. It´s said that a planet is hidden when the light from the star is brighter than the reflected light from the planet. Vectorial Shearing Interferometer (VSI) is able to distinguish between the light coming from the planet and the light coming from the star, obtaining information the relative position of the planet. We present a simulated method to detect faint sources in the way of bright sources using a VSI based in the detection of the tilt of the wavefront coming from the planet.
