Paper Abstract

The Palomar Testbed Interferometer (PTI) is a long-baseline, near-infrared interferometer located on Palomar Mountain, California. PTI has been conducting science operations since 1997 and continues to function both as a productive scientific instrument and as a technical testbed. Here I will review the current status and near-term plans for PTI, highlight some of the science results of the last two years, and describe the recently released PTI data archive.
