21 July 2010 Perspectives for the AMBER Beam Combiner
Author Affiliations +
The Astronomical Multi-BEam Recombiner (AMBER), has been operational at the Very Large Telescope Interferometer (VLTI) for many years. We present here some of the constant improvements we have been providing while still operating the instrument, with a heavy load of visitor and service observing programs, most of the nights of the year. In particular, we present here improvements regarding the spectral calibration and correction of the atmospheric loss in squared visibility due to path difference jitter, allowing the instrument to achieve greater precision.
