Abstract / Description:The mid-infrared interferometric instrument
MIDI has performed its first scientific
observations on the Very Large Telescope
Interferometer (VLTI) in June 2003. It allows
interferometric observations over the 8--13
‚‚mu; m wavelength range, with a spatial
resolution up to 20 milliarcsec, a spectral
resolution of 30 and 250, and an expected point
source sensitivity of l N = 4 mag or 1 Jy for
self-fringe tracking, which is the only
observing mode during the first months of
operation. We describe briefly the layout of the
instrument and present the first status of the
MIDI observations of Young Stellar Objects.
