Dr. T.A. ten Brummelaar Associate Director of CHARA Tuesday April 29th - 11am IPAG Seminar Room - IPAG
The CHARA Array is a six telescope optical and near infrared interferometer run by Georgia State University and located at Mount Wilson Observatory just north of Los Angeles. The CHARA consortium includes the University of Michigan, l’Observatoire de Paris, The University of Sydney, Observatoire de la Cote d’Azur, The NASA Exoplanet Science Institute, The Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy, and soon I hope the JMMC. In this talk I will give a brief overview of the facility as well as describe some of the more recent scientific observations. I will end the talk with a short discussion of the data products created by the various beam combiners at CHARA and how we might approach archiving these data.
