On March 16, 2004 the United States Patent Office awarded MZA patent number 6,707,020 for the Adaptive Dynamic Range Wavefront Sensor (ADRWFS). The device is an adaptation of a Hartmann wavefront sensor that increases the dynamic range by more than a factor of five without reducing the sensor's accuracy. Bob Praus and Daniel Eastman invented the concept in the fall of 1998. You can view the full text of the patent at the U.S. Patent Office's website, a pdf of the patent, or contact MZA for more information.
