VLTI Visitor Instruments

As of P113, there is one visitor focus available in the VLTI interferometric laboratory: VISITOR 1.

This opportunity for Visitor Instruments (VI) is offered to permit innovative observations by instrument teams using their own stand-alone instruments. VI are free from a substantial fraction of the requirements imposed on the fully automated VLTI facility instruments. In addition, VIs could provide a powerful scientific or technical test bench for new instrumental concepts, which may eventually be incorporated later in VLTI or other instruments and facilities.

Teams that want to propose the use of their VI should follow these instructions.

The technical requirements imposed by ESO on VIs are available here.
