Abstract

We present results on the final optical design, flexure tolerances and stray light analysis of the UBC Universal Beam Combiner (UBC) of the Large Binocular Telescope Interferometer (LBTI). It is expected to produce 40×60 arcsecond field with 20 milliarcsecond resolution in 2.2micron region for Fizeau Imaging.
