28 June 2006 Magdalena Ridge Observatory Interferometer: status update
Author Affiliations +
The Magdalena Ridge Observatory Interferometer (MROI) is a ten element optical and near-infrared imaging interferometer being built in the Magdalena mountains west of Socorro, NM at an altitude of 3230 m. The interferometer is being designed and built by a collaboration which includes the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology (NMT) as the prime contractor and center for the technical team, and the University of Cambridge, Physics Department at the Cavendish Laboratory, which participates in the design and executes work packages under contract with NMT. This manuscript serves as a status update on MROI, and will present progress and milestones toward the observatory's first fringes in 2008.
