Paper Abstract

We present a summary of the global system analysis that led to the current definition of the AMBER instrument. AMBER is a near infrared multi-beam combiner for the Very Large Telescope Interferometer. This analysis goes through the following issues: atmospheric systematics including atmospheric turbulence and dispersion, analysis of single mode optical fibers, photometry calibration, spectral dispersion, background noise, data reduction and calibration steps.
