Abstract

The recent Dome C site testing shows its potential for interferometry. This article presents a part of discussion about the site characteristics measured by E. Aristidi et al. during the polar night. In section 2, the site characteristics are described. In section 3, the Mykerinos prototype interferometer is exposed. This instrument can be the first step before the implementation of future large Antarctic interferometers. It will allow characterizing the best instrument specifications, test technology in extreme conditions, and check the performances predicted for interferometer from Dome C. Its baseline and precision will allow studies of hot Jupiters with small apertures.
