Paper Abstract

With the advance of image reconstruction techniques, adaptive optics and telescope arrays, optical and infrared astronomy are going through a rapid evolution which in many ways compares with the developments in radio astronomy of the last decades. Whereas many optical and infrared astronomers still view large telescopes as devices to collect large number of photons, an increasing number are anticipating their use for diffraction-limited high angular resolution observations. This short overview will emphasize the latter.
