Abstract

The six-level phase mask (SLPM) can be used in a focal plane as an efficient coronagraph [Opt. Express 22, 1884 (2014)]. It has several advantages: high-contrast imaging in broadband with small inner working angle; easy fabrication at low cost by photolithography and reactive ion etching processes; easy implementation with no need of pupil apodization. We present in this paper the first laboratory results demonstrating the high performance of a SLPM with an unobscured pupil. The on-axis attenuation reaches 2 × 10−5 at λ = 800 nm and is better than 10−4 over a 10% spectral bandwidth and better than 10−3 over a 20% bandwidth. Finally, the detection of a planet can be achieved down to 1 λ/D.

Fig. 1
Fig. 1 Left: Image of the SLPM obtained with a scanning electron microscope. The non-uniform illumination is due to the accumulation of electrons on the transitions. Right: Lithography masks used for etching the SLPM in two steps.

Fig. 2 Optical scheme of the laboratory experiment showing the main optical components. Left to right: Pupil diaphragm, SLPM focal phase mask, Lyot stop, CCD detector.
Fig. 3
Fig. 3 On-axis coronagraphic images obtained on the THD2 bench at 730 nm (left), 800 nm (middle) and 870 nm (right). The dark hole has a width of about 27 × 27 λ/D.
Fig. 4
Fig. 4 Left: On-axis attenuation as a function of the wavelength. Theoretical performance of the FQPM (dark dashed curve) and the SLPM (blue dashed curve) optimized at 785 nm. Experimental data (red points) of the SLPM. Simulated data (gray zone) for e1 varying over the range 855–866 nm and for e2 varying over 1700–1740 nm. Simulated data (blue curve) for e1 = 866 nm and e2 = 1726 nm. Right: Positions in the focal plane where the on-axis attenuation (circle) and the PSF (asterisk) is measured.
Fig. 5
Fig. 5 Left: Off-axis transmission at 785 nm as a function of the distance from the optical axis either perpendicular (red) or parallel (green) to the diagonal transition. Simulated data (blue curve) for e1 = 866 nm, e2 having no effect here. The inner working angle is close to 1 λ/D. Right: Positions of the measurements in the focal plane.

Fig. 6 Left: Transmission onto the diagonal transition as a function of the wavelength. Theoretical performance of the FQPM (dark dashed curve) and the SLPM (blue dashed curve) optimized at 785 nm. Experimental data (red points) of the SLPM. Simulated data (gray zone) for e1 varying over the range 855–866 nm and for e2 varying over 1700–1740 nm. Simulated data (blue curve) for e2 = 1704 nm, e1 having no effect here. Right: Positions of the measurements in the focal plane.
