The Develop of High Speed Array-Type Aspherical Wavefront Sensor

Project Details


The proposed research is a continue part of the research “the high dynamic range aspherical wavefrontsensor development” I from 2016/8 to 2017/8. We have successfully developed the prototype of the shackHartman sensor and have the capability to measure the spherical wavefront directly without using the axillaryoptics. The related technology had successfully licensed to the electronic company in Taiwan. Also, thecooperated project with the industry is now under researched.Shack-Hartman Sensor has the advantages of speed. It had been applied in the biomedical, astronomy andadaptive optics fields for years. But the industrial application are not so flexible due to its potential relayoptics and null optics structure. In practice, both the relay optics and null optics takes long time to prepareand is expensive to be fabricated. Therefore, the wavefront sensor is not a feasible solution for the rapidlychanging industrial application.In the proposal, we proposed a 3 years research project. Relying on the past research experience on theaspherical testing, we expect to break the barrier of the current Shack-Hartman sensor, the relay optics andany null optics requirements. Therefore, it’s expected to be the best technology to enabling the measurementof the aspherical lens in a rapid and flexible manner.
