This page lists publications by members of the optical interferometry team related to optics technology, particularly optical and near-infrared detectors. Other publications (including papers specifically about the application of such technology to interferometers) can be accessed from our main publications page.

Papers are ordered first by author, then by year (oldest first). Some links to article texts use the NASA ADS Abstracts Service.
