Abstract
In the framework of the preparation of the Darwin mission, Alcatel Space has been developing a Multi- Aperture Imaging Interferometer (MAI²) for ESA. The main purpose of this activity is to achieve a deep extinction rate, or "nulling", in the laboratory. The performance goal is a 106 nulling of a simulated star. A second objective is to image a planet-like source. The selected operating wavelength is centred around 1.55 microns, with a relative bandwidth of a few percent. The selected function conceptual designs can be updated to the Darwin spectral range (6-18μm).
