The Inner Regions of Protoplanetary Disks
To understand how planetary systems form in the dusty disks around premain-sequence stars, a detailed knowledge of the structure and evolution of these disks is required. Although this is reasonablyExpand

Optical interferometry in astronomy
Here I review the current state of the field of optical stellar interferometry, concentrating on ground-based work although a brief report of space interferometry missions is included. We pause bothExpand

Three-dimensional dust radiative-transfer models: the Pinwheel Nebula of WR 104
We present radiative-transfer modelling of the dusty spiral Pinwheel Nebula observed around the Wolf‐Rayet/OB-star binary WR 104. The models are based on the three-dimensional radiative-transfer codeExpand

A dusty torus around the luminous young star LkHα101
A star forms when a cloud of dust and gas collapses. It is generally believed that this collapse first produces a flattened rotating disk, through which matter is fed onto the embryonic star at theExpand

The Prototype Colliding-Wind Pinwheel WR 104
Results from the most extensive study of the time-evolving dust structure around the prototype pinwheel nebula WR 104 are presented. Encompassing 11 epochs in three near-infrared filter bandpasses, aExpand

Precision Measurements of the Diameters of α Orionis and ο Ceti at 11 Microns
The angular diameters of α Orionis and o Ceti were measured at a wavelength of 11.15 μm using the two-telescope Infrared Spatial Interferometer (ISI). Based on fitting the visibility data to uniformExpand

Near-Infrared Interferometric Images of the Hot Inner Disk surrounding the Massive Young Star MWC 349A
We present images of the massive young star MWC 349A at 1.65, 2.16, and 2.27, and 3.08 μm, reconstructed from complex visibility data obtained with an aperture-masking interferometric technique onExpand

Resolving Vega and the inclination controversy with CHARA/MIRC
Optical and infrared interferometers definitively established that the photometric standard Vega (={alpha} Lyrae) is a rapidly rotating star viewed nearly pole-on. Recent independent spectroscopicExpand

Mid-Infrared Interferometry on Spectral Lines. II. Continuum (Dust) Emission Around IRC +10216 and VY Canis Majoris
The University of California Berkeley Infrared Spatial Interferometer has measured the mid-infrared visibilities of the carbon star IRC +10216 and the red supergiant VY CMa. The dust shells aroundExpand

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) interferometerExpand
