The central dusty torus in the active nucleus of NGC 1068
Interferometric mid-infrared observations that spatially resolve dust structures in the galaxy NGC 1068 reveal warm dust in a structure 2.1 parsec thick and 3.4 parsec in diameter, surrounding a smaller hot structure. Expand
CHARM2: An updated Catalog of High Angular Resolution Measurements
We present an update of the Catalog of High Angular Resolution Measurements (CHARM, Richichi & Percheron [CITE], A&A, 386, 492), which includes results available until July 2004. CHARM2 is aExpand
A lunar occultation and direct imaging survey of multiplicity in the Ophiuchus and Taurus star-forming regions
We present an IR lunar occultation and direct imaging search for companions in the Ophiuchus star-forming region and update a similar search of the Taurus region. The search is sensitive toExpand
We have obtained high angular resolution (013 FWHM) near-infrared images of the central ~40'' × 40'' of the Trapezium cluster, using a speckle holography technique that we describe in detail. AExpand
AMBER, the near-infrared spectro-interferometric three-telescope VLTI instrument
Context: Optical long-baseline interferometry is moving a crucial step forward with the advent of general-user scientific instruments that equip large aperture and hectometric baseline facilities,Expand
Mid-infrared sizes of circumstellar disks around Herbig Ae/Be stars measured with MIDI on the VLTI
We present the first long baseline mid-infrared interferometric observations of the circumstellar disks surrounding Herbig Ae/Be stars. The observations were obtained using the mid-infraredExpand
CHARM: A Catalog of High Angular Resolution Measurements
The Catalog of High Angular Resolution Measurements (CHARM) includes most of the measurements obtained by the techniques of lunar occultations and long-baseline interferometry at visual and infraredExpand
The molecular and dusty composition of Betelgeuse's inner circumstellar environment
Context. The study of the atmosphere of red supergiant stars in general and of Betelgeuse (α Orionis) in particular is of prime importance to understand dust formation and how mass is lost to theExpand
The building blocks of planets within the ‘terrestrial’ region of protoplanetary disks
Sp spatially resolved detections and compositional analyses of dust building blocks in the innermost two astronomical units of three proto-planetary disks imply that silicates crystallize before any terrestrial planets are formed, consistent with the composition of meteorites in the Solar System.
