VLTI near-IR interferometric observations of Vega-like stars: Radius and age of a PsA, b Leo, b Pic, e Eri and t Cet
We report in this paper the direct interferometric measurement of the angular diameter of five nearby Vega-like stars: α PsA, β Leo, β Pic, � Eri and τ Cet. The near-infrared (K and H bands)Expand
High-resolution imaging of dust shells by using Keck aperture masking and the IOTA interferometer
We present first results of an experiment to combine data from Keck aperture masking and the Infrared-Optical Telescope Array to image the circumstellar environments of evolved stars with ~20 masExpand
BINARY STARS IN THE ORION TRAPEZIUM CLUSTER CORE
We have obtained high angular resolution (013 FWHM) near-infrared images of the central ~40'' × 40'' of the Trapezium cluster, using a speckle holography technique that we describe in detail. AExpand
A geometric distance measurement to the Galactic Center black hole with 0.3% uncertainty
We present a 0.16% precise and 0.27% accurate determination of R0, the distance to the Galactic Center. Our measurement uses the star S2 on its 16-year orbit around the massive black hole Sgr A* thatExpand
Cepheid distances from infrared long-baseline interferometry III. Calibration of the surface brightness-color relations
The recent VINCI/VLTI observations presented in Paper I have nearly doubled the total number of available angular diameter measurements of Cepheids. Taking advantage of the significantly larger colorExpand
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
Interferometric observations of the supergiant stars α Orionis and α Herculis with FLUOR at IOTA
We report the observations in the K band of the red supergiant star α Orionis and of the bright giant star α Herculis with the FLUOR beamcombiner at the IOTA interferometer. The high quality of theExpand
Circumstellar material in the Vega inner system revealed by CHARA/FLUOR
Context. Only a handful of debris disks have been imaged up to now. Due to the need for high dynamic range and high angular resolution, very little is known about the inner planetary region, whereExpand
Unveiling Mira stars behind the molecules - Confirmation of the molecular layer model with narrow band near-infrared interferometry
We have observed Mira stars with the FLUOR beamcombiner on the IOTA interferometer in narrow bands around $2.2\,\mu$m wavelength. We find systematically larger diameters in bands contaminated byExpand
A catalog of bright calibrator stars for 200-m baseline near-infrared stellar interferometry
We present in this paper a catalog of reference stars suitable for calibrating infrared interferometric observations. In the K band, visibilities can be calibrated with a precision of 1% on baselinesExpand
