Abstract

The Sydney University Stellar Interferometer (SUSI) is a long-baseline optical interferometer operating at an observatory near Narrabri in Australia. SUSI features a 640m long North-South array with 11 fixed siderostat stations. New science from the Blue (400-500 nm) and from the recently commissioned Red (500-950nm) fringe detectors will be presented. Recent technological developments, mainly associated with the new Red detection system, encompassing wavefront correction, fringe encoding, wavelength switching and data analysis strategies, are described.
