The Large Binocular Telescope Interferometer is currently in routine operation for programs such as the Hunt for Observable Signatures of Terrestrial planetary Systems (HOSTS), and its associated exoplanet survey, LEECH. Additional modes of operation are in various stages of being demonstrated and planned, including imaging interferometry, integral field spectroscopy over the 1-5 micron range, and an update to the wavefront sensors for adaptive optics. We will present current results and instrumentation plans to continue exploiting the LBT as a unique facility for high spatial resolution, high sensitivity observations.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
