    Wavefront Sensor and Method of Reconstructing Distorted Wavefronts

    (2019-08-29) Wang, Congli; Fu, Qiang; Dun, Xiong; Heidrich, Wolfgang; King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST); Visual Computing Center; Computer, Electrical and Mathematical Science and Engineering Division

    A wavefront sensor includes a mask and a sensor utilized to capture a diffraction pattern generated by light incident to the mask. A reference image is captured in response to a plane wavefront incident on the mask, and another measurement image is captured in response to a distorted wavefront incident on the mask. The distorted wavefront is reconstructed based on differences between the reference image and the measurement image.
