Abstract

This white paper reviews the physical and cost barriers to imaging and spectroscopy of terrestrial exoplanets using space and ground telescope Lyot coronagraphs. Physical optics aspects of diffraction, scattered light, image formation, and polarization that STDT’s have ignored to obtain optimistic estimates of contrast. are discussed.
