Abstract

A new wavefront sensing and reconstruction technique is presented. It is possible to measure Laplacian and gradient information of a wavefront with a Hartmann–Shack setup. By simultaneously using the Laplacian and gradient data we reconstruct the wavefront by sequentially solving two partial differential equations.
