Abstract
New beam combination techniques, using two and three telescopes, have been the focus of activity at IOTA during the past two years since our last update. In particular, we have added a third telescope, made closure-phase measurements, demonstrated two- and three-beam combination with integrated optics combiners, demonstrated two-beam combination with an asymmetric coupler, and made simultaneous JHK visibility measurements with an image-plane combiner.
