4 November 2004 Optical system alignment for detection of binaries
Author Affiliations +
We derive the alignment condition for the detection of binaries with an interferometer. We present 2-D and 3-D simulations containing the phase, Q, and cos(Q) as a function of the misalignment deviations (qx and qy) and position at the aperture. We generate patterns that enable us to determine, qualitatively, the misalignment degree of our optical system.
