Abstract
Phase diversity is a focal plane wavefront sensing technique that allows to retrieve the phase aberration introduced by a camera starting from two images of whatever object, one of which (the diverse image) is intentionally corrupted by a known aberration. We present here the results of a simulation campaign aimed at assessing the validity of this approach for sensing non-common path aberrations (NCPA) in SHARK-NIR, the new-generation high-contrast imager for the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT). The aberrations to be retrieved has been modeled on a realistic error budget of the instrument, while images are generated with an end-to-end Fresnel simulator which makes use of atmospheric phase screens to simulate realistic closed-loop observations. A wide parameter space is explored in order to identify the critical parameters and to estimate the expected level of correction.
