Wednesday 27 July 2005, by Florentin Millour


Here are typical snapshots of what we can do with the AMBER instrument

fringes waterfall
Here you can see a typical tiume-sequence of fringes of AMBER with 3 telescopes at medium spectral resolution
PNG - 22.5 kb
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
