Paper Abstract

High-resolution phase-contrast wavefront sensors based on optically addressed phase spatial light modulators and micro- mirror/LC arrays are introduced. Wavefront sensor efficiency is analyzed for atmospheric turbulence-induced phase distortions described by the Kolmogorov and Andrews models. A nonlinear Zernike filter wavefront sensor based on an optically addressed liquid crystal phase spatial light modulator is experimentally demonstrated. The results demonstrate high-resolution visualization of dynamically changing phase distortions within the sensor time response of about 10 msec.
