20 October 2004 Fringe tracking at the IOTA interferometer
Author Affiliations +
We describe the fringe-packet tracking software installed at the infrared optical telescope array (IOTA). Three independently developed fringe-packet tracking algorithms can be used to equalise the optical path lengths at the interferometer. We compare the performance of these three algorithms and show results obtained tracking fringes for three independent baselines on the sky.
