A Wide Field Nulling Imager for Direct Terrestrial Exoplanets Detection
Institute for Astronomy, 640 N. A'ohoku place, Hilo, HI 96720, USA
In this work, I show that a wide field nulling imager is a very attractive solution for discovering and characterizing Earth-sized planets around other stars. The concept presented in this paper takes advantage of recent developments in nulling coronagraphy and a number of other techniques (aperture synthesis, pupil densification, pupil dilution) that make it possible to obtain high quality coronagraphic images with an interferometer.
