(Received 25 July 2001 / Accepted 27 September 2001)

A class of threefold symmetric configurations of an interferometer completely covering a hexagonal domain of a given size in the spatial-frequency plane and thus ensuring practically equal resolution in all beam cross-sections is described. The configurations are compactly arranged and have a minimized number of elements.

Key words: instrumentation: interferometers
