The reconstruction quality of turbulence-induced phase distortions from Hartmann data is calculated for masks with different subpupil forms by means of computer simulations. Four subpupil forms are considered: the circle, the square, the hexagon, and the polar segment. We show that, for the case of a circular aperture, the mask with polar segment subpupils provides the best reconstruction quality.
