This paper provides an overview of technology development for the Terrestrial Planet Finder Interferometer
(TPF-I). TPF-I is a mid-infrared space interferometer being designed with the capability of detecting Earth-like
planets in the habitable zones around nearby stars. The overall technology roadmap is presented and progress
with each of the testbeds is summarized.© (2008) COPYRIGHT SPIE--The International Society for Optical Engineering. Downloading of the abstract is permitted for personal use only.
