Abstract

The NRLA design successfully integrates an efficient nulling coronagraph in a wide-field imaging interferometer. Its imaging capabilities make it suitable for a wide range of scientific programs: planet detection and characterization as well as imaging of faint extragalactic sources. It was shown through performance study with an efficient use of the incoming photons that its sensitivity for planet detection was very good.
