The Pyramid Wavefront Sensor (PWFS) Aligned in the lab to the White Light Source

The PWFS is now aligned on the bench. In the image you can see to the right a single frame of the CCD39 showing a flat wavefront with a slight tilt from our lamp source. On the left you an see the diffraction-limited image of the source on our VisAO camera in r’ band (resolution of 18 milliarcsec on the sky).An r’ band image of the lamp and its “flat” wavefront on the PWFS
