OVRO Search for Binary Protostars
(Launhardt, Sargent & Zinnecker 2000)

This OVRO program "aims at sub-arcsecond resolution corresponding to linear resolutions of 150 to 450 AU." Later, with ALMA, the aim is to achieve "0.1 arcsec resolution, or 15 - 45 AU, close to the peak of the pre-main sequence binary separation distribution."
