Milliarcsecond Astronomy with the CHARA Array

We will hold a CHARA Community Workshop at the University of Texas in Austin, Texas on Friday, June 15, 2018.  The workshop will provide an overview on stellar astrophysics at high angular resolution, basics of interferometry, the science capabilities of the CHARA Array, and how to prepare and apply for observing time.  This is part of our new initiative to offer 50 nights per year of open access time to the astronomical community through the NOAO time allocation process.  During the workshop, there will be time for participants to consult with CHARA staff about their plans for science programs.

Topics that will be covered during the workshop include:

  • Stellar astrophysics at high angular resolution
  • Principles of stellar interferometry
  • Overview of the CHARA Array and other interferometers
  • How to apply for time at the CHARA Array
  • Observing strategies and planning for interferometric observations
  • Overview of modeling and imaging software
