A telescope alone is not enough to do advanced astronomical research — the light they capture must be analysed by an instrument. There is a huge range of instruments and techniques that can help astronomers make the most of the information collected with a telescope. Interferometry is one of these techniques and has guided engineers to build highly-developed instruments for precise interferometric measurements. To learn more about these instruments, we catch up with ESO Fellow Joel Sanchez-Bermudez, who was involved with the GRAVITY instrument on the Very Large Telescope Interferometer at Paranal.
