Abstract

We have investigated the potential for using single-mode fiber optics to link two or more telescopes in a large optical to near-IR astronomical interferometer. On an optical bench, we observed the effects of dispersion, temperature, and birefringence on wide-bandwidth interference fringes using up to 30 m of single-mode fiber in each arm of a Twyman-Green interferometer.
