Direct imaging of exoplanets requires overcoming the enormous contrast between the exoplanet and its host star, to distinguish the reflected light from the exoplanet, from the diffracted light of the star. Direct optimization of contrast, using nonlinear optimization techniques of the Adaptive Optics (AO) system coupled with coronagraphy, shows...

TNO developed a Wave Front Sensor (WFS) instrument for the GAIA mission. This Wave Front Sensor will be used to monitor the wave front errors of the two main telescopes mounted on the GAIA satellite, which may be corrected by a 5- degree of freedom (DOF) mechanism during operation. The GAIA-WFS will operate over a broad wavelength (450 to 900 nm...
