olbin - Optical Long Baseline Interferometry News

Subject: Optical Long Baseline Interferometry News

Purpose of the OLBIN Forum

The OLBIN forum has been established to promote discussions and to facilitate communication amongst scientists, engineers, and students who share an interest in the development of optical long-baseline interferometry. The forum includes an email exploder and an archived list of contributions.

The forum was set up by Fabien Malbet (JMMC/LAOG) and Peter Lawson (JPL) with the support of the IAU Working Group on Optical/IR Interferometry. The web site is moderated by Fabien Malbet at the Observatoire de Grenoble as an extension of resources available through the Optical Long Baseline Interferometry Newsletter (OLBIN),, and to promote the long-term goals of the Working Group.

Subjects of discussion

Any discussions or announcements relating to long-baseline optical/IR interferometry are welcome. Subjects might include questions and answers relating to the basic theory of interferometry, practical matters concerning the design and implementation of stellar interferometers with related questions on hardware or software. Announcements are also encouraged, particularly the early notice of new results, announcements of upcoming meetings, and the distribution of abstracts of new papers, or of the papers themselves. Also welcome are announcements of new Ph.D. theses, distributions of new software or catalogs, and requests for collaboration.
