Paper Abstract

We argue that adding large apertures with adaptive optics to an optical interferometer improves the performance of the interferometer in two ways: it improves the signal to noise of bright, low-visibility fringes and it also improves the sensitivity of the interferometer. A simple model is presented to support this conclusion.
