Paper Abstract

The differential phase yields high dynamics and/or super resolution information. This mode will be available with AMBER at VLTI in autumn 2003 and has a wide range of scientific applications. The goal of our study is to keep the instrumental effects under the level of fundamental noises. This might be achieved, with 2 telescopes, thanks to a proper stabilization of the chromatic instrumental effects and/or a fast calibration, which are both presented together with the expected residual chromatic effects. With (at least) 3 telescopes, closure phase with AMBER together with spatial modulation should allow to make low-resolution spectroscopy on many nearby EGPs, but would be restrictive for non-resolved objects.
