Abstract:

This report describes the development and validation of a computer simulation of Hartmann sensor optical performance. A brief study was performed using the validated code to evaluate the sensitivity of Hartmann sensor performance to sensor design parameters and input beam aberration characteristics. Significant loss of aberration mode fidelity can result from failure to account for the effects of partially illuminated Hartmann plate subapertures. Such mode fidelity degradations tend to be less severe with moderately high resolution plate designs e.g., 12 x 12. Author
