Abstract

A recent comment has pointed out that some practically important aberration modes have zero curvature and in consequence seem difficult to sense using phase-diversity approaches that are equivalent to curvature sensing. Here we comment on the approaches that should be adopted when faced with a need to measure such aberration modes.
