20 October 2004 AMBER integration and laboratory performances
Author Affiliations +
AMBER is the focal near-infrared instrument of the VLTI combining 2 or 3 telescopes in the J, H and K bands with 3 spectral resolution modes. It uses single-mode fibers to ensure modal filtering and high measurement accuracies. AMBER has been integrated and tested in Grenoble during 2003. We report in this paper the lab performances of the instrument in terms of instrumental contrast, measurement accuracy and stability, and throughput.
