A typical fringe pattern
3T fringe pattern at medium spectral resolution for an emission-line star
PNG - 11.1 kb
PNG - 13.5 kb
typical P2VM matrix
PNG - 11.7 kb
Typical instrumental contrast
the instrumental contrast at medium spectral resolution. The lower value for the 3rd baseline is due to the resolution of the calibration source
