Paper Abstract

A new wavefront sensing method based on local wavefront curvature measurements rather than tilt measurements is investigated. Performances are compared to that of a Shack-Hartmann sensor. Examples of experimentally reconstructed wavefronts are presented and several applications are discussed.
