LSST: From Science Drivers to Reference Design and Anticipated Data Products
TLDR
The LSST design is driven by four main science themes: probing dark energy and dark matter, taking an inventory of the solar system, exploring the transient optical sky, and mapping the Milky Way. Expand
Stellar Diameters and Temperatures. II. Main-sequence K- and M-stars
We present interferometric angular diameter measurements of 21 low-mass, K- and M-dwarfs made with the CHARA Array. This sample is enhanced by adding a collection of radius measurements published inExpand
LSST Science Book, Version 2.0
A survey that can cover the sky in optical bands over wide fields to faint magnitudes with a fast cadence will enable many of the exciting science opportunities of the next decade. The Large SynopticExpand
Velocity, reddening, and temperature structure of the H2 emission in Orion
We present high-resolution (..delta..V = 20 km s/sup -1/) Fourier transform spectrometer spectra of the 2 ..mu..m He/sub 2/ emission in the Orion molecular cloud (OMC) core. Using a 3. 75 aperture,Expand
Imaging the Surface of Altair
TLDR
Using optical long-baseline interferometry, a near-infrared image of the rapidly rotating hot star Altair is constructed with a resolution of <1 milliarcsecond that clearly reveals the strong effect of gravity darkening on the highly distorted stellar photosphere. Expand
STELLAR DIAMETERS AND TEMPERATURES. III. MAIN-SEQUENCE A, F, G, AND K STARS: ADDITIONAL HIGH-PRECISION MEASUREMENTS AND EMPIRICAL RELATIONS
Based on CHARA Array measurements, we present the angular diameters of 23 nearby, main-sequence stars, ranging from spectral types A7 to K0, 5 of which are exoplanet host stars. We derive linearExpand
COLDER AND HOTTER: INTERFEROMETRIC IMAGING OF β CASSIOPEIAE AND α LEONIS
Near-infrared interferometers have recently imaged a number of rapidly rotating A-type stars, finding levels of gravity darkening inconsistent with theoretical expectations. Here, we present newExpand
First Results from the CHARA Array. VII. Long-Baseline Interferometric Measurements of Vega Consistent with a Pole-On, Rapidly Rotating Star
We have obtained high-precision interferometric measurements of Vega with the CHARA Array and FLUOR beam combiner in the K’ band at projected baselines between 103m and 273m. The measured visibilityExpand
THE CHARA ARRAY ANGULAR DIAMETER OF HR 8799 FAVORS PLANETARY MASSES FOR ITS IMAGED COMPANIONS
HR 8799 is an hF0 mA5 γ Doradus-, λ Bootis-, Vega-type star best known for hosting four directly imaged candidate planetary companions. Using the CHARA Array interferometer, we measure HR 8799'sExpand
