Milliarcsecond Astronomy with the CHARA Array

 

We will hold a CHARA Community Workshop at the University of Toledo in Ohio on Friday, September 8, 2017.  The workshop will provide tutorials on 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:

  • Principles of stellar interferometry
  • Overview of the CHARA Array and other interferometers
  • Science review of recent results from interferometry
  • Observing strategies and planning for interferometric observations
  • How to apply for time at the CHARA Array
  • Overview of modeling and imaging software

Lunch will be provided if you register by Sept 1.  Space is limited.  Please visit the website below to register:
