Abstract

A tandem-vortex coronagraph can in theory enable high-contrast imaging behind a classical on-axis telescope. Here we point out that a tandem-vortex coronagraph configuration can also directly enable the measurement of the phases of focal-plane speckles, thereby allowing for their suppression in the resultant high-contrast image.
