28 July 2008 LINC-NIRVANA: the Fizeau interferometer for the Large Binocular Telescope
Author Affiliations +
LINC-NIRVANA is an innovative imaging interferometer fed by dedicated multi-conjugated adaptive optics systems. The instrument combines the light of the two, 8.4-meter primary mirrors of the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT) on a single focal plane, providing panoramic imagery with 23-meter spatial resolution. LINC-NIRVANA is entering its final integration phase, with the large adaptive-optics and imaging subsystems coming together in the clean room in Heidelberg. Here, we report on progress, including insights gained on instrument assembly and vibration control.
