Sensing Technologies

Wavefront sensing is still the driver for optical image restoration so we have developed and are continuing to develop a suite of new technologies to meet different sensing needs. While we are good at making traditional Shack-Hartmann sensors, new sensing technologies allow our systems to operate with higher sensitivities and through different sensing regimes. 

No Universal Wavefront Sensor

In-House Development for Higher Sensitivity

We led the development of non-linear curvature wavefront sensing in order to meet the needs for high dynamic-range and higher sensitivities. Even though we had to reinvent the methods because of computing speed limits, we were able to achieve unmatched sensitivity to wavefront errors.
