The first complete orbital solution for the double-lined spectroscopic binary system γ 2 Velorum, obtained from measurements with the Sydney University Stellar Interferometer (SUSI), is presented. This system contains the closest example of a Wolf-Rayet star and the promise of full characterization of the basic properties of this exotic high-mass system has subjected it to intense study as an archetype for its class. In combination with the latest radial-velocity results, our orbital solution…

ORBIT DETERMINATION OF DOUBLE-LINED SPECTROSCOPIC BINARIES BY FITTING THE REVISED HIPPARCOS INTERMEDIATE ASTROMETRIC DATA
Untill now, the Hipparcos intermediate astrometric data (HIAD) have contributed little to the full orbit determination of double-lined spectroscopic binaries (SB2s). This is because the photocenter
The stellar association around Gamma Velorum and its relationship with Vela OB2
We present the results of a photometric BVI survey of 0.9 deg 2 around the Wolf-Rayet binary γ 2 Vel and its early-type common proper motion companion γ 1 Vel (together referred to as the y Vel
The Gaia-ESO Survey: the first abundance determination of the pre-main-sequence cluster gamma Velorum
Context. Knowledge of the abundance distribution of star forming regions and young clusters is critical to investigate a variety of issues, from triggered star formation and chemical enrichment by
The dynamics of the γ Vel cluster and nearby Vela OB2 association
The kinematics of low-mass stars in nearby OB associations can provide clues about their origins and evolution. Combining the precise positions, proper motions and parallaxes given in the second Gaia
Hints of γ-ray orbital variability from γ2 Velorum
Context. Colliding wind binaries are massive systems featuring strong, interacting stellar winds which may act as particle accelerators. Therefore, such binaries are good candidates for detection at
The CHARA Array resolves the long-period Wolf-Rayet binaries WR 137 and WR 138
We report on interferometric observations with the CHARA Array of two classical Wolf-Rayet stars in suspected binary systems, namely WR 137 and WR 138. In both cases, we resolve the component stars
Wolf-Rayet stars probed by AMBER/VLTI
Massive stars deeply influence their surroundings by their luminosity and the injection of kinetic energy. So far, they have mostly been studied with spatially unresolved observations, although
Hints about the multiplicity of WR 133 based on multiepoch radio observations
Several tens of massive binary systems display indirect, or even strong evidence for non-thermal radio emission, hence their particle accelerator status. These objects are referred to as
Hipparcos Photocentric Orbits of 72 Single-lined Spectroscopic Binaries
By fitting the Hipparcos Intermediate Astrometric Data (HIAD), photocentric orbits can be obtained for the single-lined spectroscopic binaries (SB1s). In previous work, a simplifying approximation
