Paper Abstract

Rotationally shearing interferometer has been proposed for the detection of a faint planet next to a bright star. The instrument was successfully used in a laboratory for optical testing of novel optical components. It has also been used to test for presence of a planet in a laboratory-simulated solar system. The system may be used for detection of other, distant, invisible, unknown, and small sources next to the bright source.
