We present the third release of the AMBER data reduction software by the JMMC. This software is based on core algorithms optimized after several years of operation. An optional graphic interface in a high level language allows the user to control the process step by step or in a completely automatic manner. Ongoing improvement is the implementation of a robust calibration scheme, making use of the full calibration sets available during the night. The output products are standard OI-FITS files… Expand


"Advanced" data reduction for the AMBER instrument
This article presents the approach to complement this default calibration scheme, to perform the final steps of data reduction, and to produce fully calibrated AMBER data products, written to complement the amdlib software. Expand
Data reduction for the AMBER instrument
The algorithm used to retrieve the complex coherent visibility of the science target and the subsequent squared visibility, differential phase and phase closure on the 3 bases and in the 3 spectral bands available in AMBER is presented. Expand
Pipeline reductions of AMBER calibrator data

The reductions were made using publicly available software for AMBER and therefore can be used as a reference for the data quality independent observers may expect from AMBER. Expand
Optimised data reduction for the AMBER/VLTI instrument
Context. The signal processing of multi-aperture monomode interferometers using multiaxial recombination, such as AMBER/VLTI, makes use of the modeling of the fringes in the image space called theExpand
AMBER instrument control software
AMBER (Astronomical Multiple BEam Recombiner) is a 3 aperture interferometric recombiner operating between 1 and 2.5 um, for the Very Large Telescope Interferometer (VLTI). The control software ofExpand
Interferometric data reduction with AMBER/VLTI. Principle, estimators, and illustration.
Aims. In this paper, we present an innovative data reduction method for single-mode interferometry. It has been specifically developed for the AMBER instrument, the three-beam combiner of the VeryExpand
First results from the ESO VLTI calibrators program
Received / accepted Abstract. The ESO Very Large Telescope Interferometer (VLTI) is one of the leading interferometric facilities. It is equipped with several 8.2 and 1.8m telescopes, a large numberExpand
