The scientific need for building telescopes with much higher spatial resolution than can be achieved with existing or planned instruments is well known. Michelson-type interferometers with baselines from a few tens of meters up to several kilometers have been proposed. While the larger baselines will undoubtedly be constructed in space, consideration of ground-based sites for baselines up to a few hundred meters will be important because of the relative costs. To measure fringes in the absence of optical path variations due to atmospheric turbulence, the interferometer baseline, B, must be stable.
