Abstract

An optical vortex coronagraph that makes efficient use of a larger fraction of the clear aperture of a Cassegrain-type telescope is described. This design incorporates an elliptical subaperture rather than the conventional circular subaperture. We derive a new vortex phase mask that maintains the same theoretical contrast of a circularly symmetric vortex coronagraph.
