We carried out a search for companions to B stars using the adaptive optics system of the Advanced Electro-Optical System 3.6 m telescope. We observed 70 B stars in the I band, finding 16 companions, 10 of which are newly discovered companions. For each system with a detected companion we give its measured astrometry and differential magnitude. We then put the observation in context of the system's known multiplicity and provide a somewhat crude estimate of its spectral type based on the single… 

Astrometric and photometric measurements of binary stars with adaptive optics: observations from 2002

The adaptive optics system at the 3.6-m AEOS telescope was used to measure the astrometry and differential magnitude in I band of 56 binary stars in 2002. The astrometric measurements will be of use
