    Lippmann's and Gabor's Revolutionary Approach to Imaging

  • Consequently, the team turned to a technique called interferometry, which involves combining the light coming from several telescopes to yield resolution equivalent to a telescope as large as the distance between them.

  • The other, TPF-I, relied on a technique called interferometry, where starlight is split into separate beams and recombined so that it annihilates itself, like two out-of-phase waves colliding in a pond to form a placid surface.

  • In addition to many projects related to imaging, adaptive optics and interferometry that NASA has carried out with the Keck telescopes, the recent mapping of the sources of methane on Mars is just one example of important planetary science being done by NASA with these instruments.

  • The optical sleight of hand used by the astronomers combined the telescope's "adaptive optics" with a technique called aperture mask interferometry: using a a deformable mirror to rapidly correct for atmospheric distortions to starlight.
