Abstract
We have obtained the curvature signal from defocused images before and after the pupil image for a simplified segmented mirror model. We used white light interferometry in order to calibrate the relative piston difference between the segments. The first results of applying the Curvature Sensing method to measure this relative piston difference are presented.
