This is not a general public astronomy course: it focuses on a specific type of astronomical observation that is required when one needs high angular resolution information. The intended audience primarily consists of first or second year's Master's degree students with an interest in astronomy and/or astronomical instrumentation. Others, with a background in engineering should also feel quite comfortable.

At a tactical level, students should be familiar with complex numbers (used to describe electromagnetic waves), Taylor expansions (used to approximate and simplify complex equations) and have a basic understanding of statistics (mean, standard deviation).

Interferometry specialists are said to live in the "Fourier space": the Fourier Transform is a tool that indeed proves central to the course. While it will be introduced again and covered during this course, a preliminary understanding of what it is and how it works (at least in the 1-dimensional case) would prove useful.

Maître de conférence à l'Observatoire de la Côte d'Azur


L’Observatoire de la Côte d’Azur (OCA) est un établissement public national d’enseignement supérieur et de la recherche à caractère administratif (EPA) et porte par ses statuts les missions de recherches scientifiques, de services d’observation et de diffusion des connaissances d’un Observatoire des Sciences de l’Univers (OSU). L’OCA regroupe et pilote les activités de recherche en sciences de la Terre et de l’Univers de la région azuréenne grâce à son unité mixte de services, Galilée et ses 3 unités de recherche multitutelles (UNS, CNRS, IRD, OCA) : Artémis, Géoazur et Lagrange. L’OCA héberge également l’unité LISE du Collège de France.
