Technology development for space based Vortex Coronagraphy


As demonstrated recently at the Palomar Observatory, the Optical Vortex Coronagraph (OVC) can enable high-contrast imaging observations very near bright stars. A small-angle observational capability is especially important because it can reduce the telescope diameter needed for close companion observations. However, as the OVC is a fairly new technique, the… (More)
