5 July 2000 Space-based interferometric telescopes for the far infrared
Author Affiliations +
We discuss concepts for deploying direct-detection interferometers in space which are optimized for the wavelength range 40 micrometers to 500 micrometers . In particular, we introduce two missions in NASA's current strategic plan: SPIRIT (SPace InfraRed Interferometric Telescope) and SPECS (Submillimeter Probe of the Evolution of Cosmic Structure).
