Paper Abstract

We have constructed a five-telescope beam combiner composed of standard single-mode fiber optics and directional couplers. The device has good thermal and polarization stability, high throughput, and allows simultaneous measurement of all 10 possible interference pairs. It is connected to a small five-telescope interferometer, which is used to make synthetic aperture images.
