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.
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,
Palomar Testbed Interferometer
The Palomar Testbed Interferometer (PTI) is an infrared, phase-tracking interferometer in operation at Palomar Mountain since July 1995. It was funded by NASA for the purpose of developing techniques
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-infrared
New insights on the AU-scale circumstellar structure of FU Orionis
We report new near-infrared, long-baseline interferometric observations at the AU scale of the pre-main-sequence star FU Orionis with the PTI, IOTA and VLTI interferometers. This young stellar object
PIONIER: a 4-telescope visitor instrument at VLTI
PIONIER stands for Precision Integrated-Optics Near-infrared Imaging ExpeRiment. It combines four 1.8m Auxilliary Telescopes or four 8m Unit Telescopes of the Very Large Telescope Interferometer
Few Skewed Disks Found in First Closure-Phase Survey of Herbig Ae/Be Stars
Using the three-telescope IOTA interferometer on Mount Hopkins, we report results from the first near-infrared (lambda = 1.65 mu m) closure-phase survey of young stellar objects (YSOs). These closure
Sub-astronomical unit structure of the near-infrared emission from AB Aurigae
We present near-infrared, long-baseline, interferometric observations of AB Aurigae, a well-known Herbig Ae/Be star, obtained with the Infrared Optical Telescope Array. The near-infrared emission
First Surface-resolved Results with the Infrared Optical Telescope Array Imaging Interferometer: Detection of Asymmetries in Asymptotic Giant Branch Stars
We have measured nonzero closure phases for about 29% of our sample of 56 nearby asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars, using the three-telescope Infrared Optical Telescope Array (IOTA) interferometer
