Paper Abstract

In this paper, we briefly review the status of interferometry on the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT) and introduce LINC, a near-infrared beam combiner we have proposed for the LBT. We present some key science programs, and we conclude with a discussion of how we are approaching LINC's optical design.
