It's just a phase: High-contrast imaging with patterned liquid-crystal phase plates to facilitate characterization of exoplanets
This thesis aims to demonstrate how the achromatic nature and design flexibility of liquid-crystal optics can be used to improve high-contrast imaging instruments to facilitate detailed exoplanet characterization.
Suppressing a Sea of Starlight: Enabling technology for the direct imaging of exoplanets
Promotor: Christoph U. Keller, Co-promotores: Matthew A. Kenworthy, Frans Snik
Focal-plane wavefront sensors for direct exoplanet imaging: Theory, simulations and on-sky demonstrations
One of the key limitations of the direct imaging of exoplanets at small angular separations are quasi-static speckles that originate from evolving non-common path aberrations (NCPA) to which the primary adaptive optics system is inherently blind. The main focus of this thesis is the development and…
