Paper Abstract

We use the point spread function and the modulation transfer function as two measures to evaluate the performance of the multi-aperture interferometric configurations for the detection of faint planets in the vicinity of bright stars. We design non-redundant interferometric layouts that provide satisfactory coverage of the spatial frequencies of interest. We propose a design incorporating a rotating, rotationally shearing interferometer and compare its performance with the Earth-based, fixed, linear configurations.
