The VERITAS-Stellar Intensity Interferometry (VSII) survey of Stellar Diameters

2021 
The VERITAS Imaging Air Cherenkov Telescope (IACT) array was augmented in 2019 with high-speed focal plane electronics to allow its use for Stellar Intensity Interferometry (SII) observations. Since January 2019, The VERITAS Stellar Interferometer (VSII) recorded more than 250 hours of moonlit observations on 39 different bright stars and binary systems ($m_V < 3.74$ ) at an effective optical wavelength of 416 nm. These observations resulted in the measurement of the diameters of several stars with better than 5\% resolution. This talk will describe the status of the VSII survey and analysis.
