24 July 1998 Visibility calibrations with the Palomar Testbed Interferometer
Author Affiliations +
The Palomar Testbed Interferometer is a long-baseline, near-infrared astronomical interferometer capable of visibility measurement and narrow-angle differential astrometry. In this submission we consider the problem of fringe amplitude calibration as applied to the study of single and binary star systems with PTI. Methodologies for selecting appropriate calibration objects, and performing the calibrations to produce consistent multi-night datasets are considered. Applications of such calibrated datasets to binary orbit determination and stellar diameter measurements will be presented.
