Abstract
The CHARA Array is a six-element, optical/NIR interferometer, which currently has the largest operational baselines in the world. The Array is operated by Georgia State University and is located at the Mount Wilson Observatory in California. The Array thrives thanks to members of the CHARA consortium that includes LESIA (Observatoire de Paris), Observatoire de la Cote dAzur, University of Michigan, Sydney University, Australian National University, and University of Exeter. Here we give a brief introduction to the Array infrastructure with a focus on a developing Adaptive Optics (AO) program, the new community access program funded by the NSF, and recent science results.
