Abstract
The University of Maryland has developed instruments using Amplitude Interferometry (Al) for various types of groundbased telescope observations in order to support a program in Very High Resolution AstroPhysics. An initial version of the Amplitude Interferometer the Single (pair of) Aperture Amplitude Interferometer (SAAI), has been used in a longterm program of observations, primarily on Mt. Wilson and Palomar Mtn. A new more powerful instrument, the MultiAperture Amplitude Interferometer (MAAI) has been developed and fabricated and is being prepared for telescope testing.
