INTERSTELLAR EXTINCTION LAW TOWARD THE GALACTIC CENTER III: J, H, KS BANDS IN THE 2MASS AND THE MKO SYSTEMS, AND 3.6, 4.5, 5.8, 8.0 μm IN THE SPITZER/IRAC SYSTEM
We have determined interstellar extinction law toward the Galactic center (GC) at the wavelength from 1.2 to 8.0 μm, using point sources detected in the IRSF/SIRIUS near-infrared (NIR) survey andExpand

A near-infrared survey of Miras and the distance to the Galactic Centre
We report the results of a near-infrared survey for long-period variables in a field of view of 20 arcmin by 30 arcmin towards the Galactic Centre (GC). We have detected 1364 variables, of which 348Expand

Near-Infrared Images of Protoplanetary Disk Surrounding HD 142527*
We discovered a unique morphology in a disk around the Herbig Ae star HD 142527 by near-infrared (H and K bands) adaptive optics imaging observations. The almost face-on disk consists of two brightExpand
