MRO Interferometer

(MROI, Magdalena Ridge Observatory Interferometer)
(optical interferometer in New Mexico)

The MRO Interferometer (MROI) is an optical interferometer under construction at Magdalena Ridge Observatory (MRO in New Mexico. It will incorporate ten 1.4-meter telescopes, movable to any of 27 stations positioned in a Y shape, allowing baselines up to 340 meters. Light will be piped to a Beam Combining Area (BCA) where the interference will be carried out. The goal is optical aperture synthesis.
