Abstract:

In the recent years, interferometric arrays of optical telescopes have reached sizes of the order of 100 m, but they have yet to produce high-resolution images. The analysis of image formation now shows that such images are theoretically obtainable directly in the recombined focal plane, if there are enough telescopes. Resolved images of extra-solar planets are in principle obtainable with 10 km ground-based arrays.

Key words: techniques: interferometric planetary systems
