Abstract

We present the results of a pupil-masking experiment that uses the Sun as the source object. The goal of our experiment was a proof-of-concept validation for a Fizeau (image-plane) interferometric beam combination with a complex source that overfilled the field of view. We employed a phase-diversity technique to measure the optical phases required to recover the instantaneous optical transfer function for the masked pupil. We used a Wiener filter to deconvolve the dirty images.
