Abstract

A simple model is used to show that control of dispersion in an all-fiber stellar interferometer is feasible. From the results we assume that an interferometer control system is available in which both temperature and strain are used to balance the interferometer. Within the restriction of a single polarization mode, it is shown that vacuum path errors before the coupling of starlight into the fibers as well as fiber-length differences and environmental differences between two fibers can be corrected to high order.
