Science with the VLT Interferometer Proceedings of the ESO Workshop Held at Garching, Germany, 18–21 June 1996

The next major step for the highest possible angular resolution in astronomy will be taken with the construction of large interferometric arrays. ESO's VLT Interferometer will employ an array of four 8 m and three 1.8 m diameter telescopes coherently combined to reach an unprecedented resolutio...
