Science modules under development

These modules will provide additional science science capabilities. They are available for engineering observations and undergoing commissionning, but not yet offered for regular open use observations.

If you would like to use these new capabilities for science or engineering, please contact us to join the corresponding development/commissionning team(s).


FIRST is a visible light fiber-fed interferometer for stellar physics. It provides ultra-high angular resolution to map the surface of stars and identify tight companions.


RHEA is a small-field-of-view, high spectral resolution integral field spectrograph for stellar physics.


GLINT is a near-IR fiber-fed photonic nuller interferometer, optimized to observe warm dust around stars.

Visiting modules and experiments

We are currently hosting two visiting cameras. The visiting instruments are managed by our collaborators - please contact them if you would like to get involved.
