Optical interferometers now routinely use high-speed auto-guiding on each aperture in order to mitigate atmospheric effects and significantly improve their back-end sensitivity. Such systems can be thought of as correcting the gross wavefront errors introduced by the atmosphere. In this talk, I will briefly summarise some of my work on such a system to be deployed at the Magdalena Ridge Optical Interferometer, before talking in more depth about whether current and next-generation optical interferometers have similar improvements to gain from higher order wavefront correction.
