Paper Abstract

In this note, I examine the properties of various pupil plane schemes of beam-recombination for a non- monolithic interferometric array of telescopes. I first recall the basic features of the Modulus Transfer Function in the pupil plane, and discuss the phase estimation through phase closure techniques. I aIso address the questions of the interferometric field of view and of the combination of pupils of unequaJ sizes. Finally, I propose some recombination schemes adapted to the various wavelength domains.
