Paper Abstract

We summarize the characteristics and performance of a recent instrument for the detection of interference fringes in the near IR at the IR Optical Telescope Array (IOTA). The instrument had its first test run and saw 'first fringes' in Spring 1997, and has been regularly used since by several groups at the IOTA for a variety of high resolution investigations in the near IR. We present preliminary results from our group's campaign to study Mira variables and the circumstellar environments of Herbig AeBe stars.
