Abstract

Adaptive optics (AO) correction based on pyramid wavefront sensors (P-WFSs) has been successfully implemented in several instruments for astronomical observation due to the P-WFS advantages in terms of sensitivity with respect to other WFSs, such as the Shack–Hartmann. The correction of non-common path aberrations (NCPAs) between the sensing and the scientific arm, commonly performed introducing offsets to the Zernike coefficients of the measured wavefront in the AO closed loop, reduces the sensitivity of P-WFSs causing a loss in sky coverage and scientific throughput. We propose a technique to exploit the full capabilities of P-WFSs compensating the NCPAs up to the fourth order on the WFS channel by means of a multi-actuator adaptive lens (MAL). We show the preliminary results obtained in a dedicated laboratory test bench.
