Paper Abstract

AMBER, Astronomical Multi BEam combineR, is the near- infrared instrument dedicated to the VLTI. It is presently designed to work with three of either the 8 m or the 1.8 m telescopes from 1 to 2.5 micrometers . Given the expected scientific performance and requirements for AMBER, we derived the functional analysis leading to the present optical configuration using optical fibers to spatially filter the wavefront perturbations, and dispersed fringes. The expected performance is presented in terms of optical quality and sensitivity to misalignments.
