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
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
Multiplicity of the massive stars in the Orion Nebula cluster 1 1 Based on data collected at the SAO
An improved metal-core weld wire, usable for joint and surface welding, having a steel sheath with a core, and a core composition disposed in the core of the steel sheath, wherein the coreExpand
Tracing the young massive high-eccentricity binary system Theta 1 Orionis C through periastron passage
Context. The nearby high-mass star binary system θ 1 Ori C is the brightest and most massive of the Trapezium OB stars at the core of the Orion Nebula Cluster, and it represents a perfect laboratoryExpand
Constraining the structure of the planet-forming region in the disk of the Herbig Be star HD 100546 ?
Studying the physical conditions in circumstellar disks is a crucial step toward understanding planet formation. Of particular interest is the case of HD 100546, a Herbig Be star that presents a gapExpand
A hot compact dust disk around a massive young stellar object
Near-infrared interferometric observations that spatially resolve the astronomical-unit-scale distribution of hot material around a high-mass (∼20 solar masses) young stellar object show an elongated structure with a size of ∼13 × 19 astronomical units, consistent with a disk seen at an inclination angle of ∼45°.

Visual/infrared interferometry of Orion Trapezium stars: preliminary dynamical orbit and aperture synthesis imaging of the θ1 Orionis C system
Context. Located in the Orion Trapezium cluster, θ^1 Ori C is one of the youngest and nearest high-mass stars (O5-O7) known. Besides its unique properties as a magnetic rotator, the system is alsoExpand
Clumpy dust clouds and extended atmosphere of the AGB star W Hydrae revealed with VLT/SPHERE-ZIMPOL and VLTI/AMBER
Context. Dust formation is thought to play an important role in the mass loss from stars at the asymptotic giant branch (AGB); however, where and how dust forms is still open to debate. Aims. WeExpand
Clumpy dust clouds and extended atmosphere of the AGB star W Hydrae revealed with VLT/SPHERE-ZIMPOL and VLTI/AMBER. II. Time variations between pre-maximum and minimum light
Aims. Our recent visible polarimetric images of the well-studied AGB star W Hya taken at pre-maximum light (phase 0.92) with VLT/SPHERE-ZIMPOL have revealed clumpy dust clouds close to the star at ~2Expand
Diffraction-limited bispectrum speckle interferometry of the nuclear region of the Seyfert galaxy NGC 1068 in the H and K' bands
We present near-infrared bispectrum speckle interferometry studies of the nuclear region of the Seyfert 2 galaxy NGC 1068. A diffraction-limited K � -band image with 74 mas resolution and the firstExpand
