Abstract
Fizeau interferometry at the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT) offers significant advantages over other facilities in terms of spatial resolution, field of view, and sensitivity. We provide an update of the LINC-NIRVANA project, which aims to bring a near-infrared and visible wavelength Fizeau beam combiner to the LBT by late 2005. As with any complex instrument, a number of detailed requirements drive the final design adopted.
