We present a new calibration of optical (UBV, Strömgren uvbyβ, and Geneva) and near-IR (Johnson RIJHK and Two Micron All Sky Survey) photometry for B and early A stars derived from Kurucz ATLAS9 model atmospheres. Our sample of stars consists of 45 normal nearby B and early A stars that have high-quality, low-resolution IUE spectra and accurate Hipparcos parallaxes. The calibration is unique because it relies only on the UV spectral energy distributions, the absolute flux calibration of the V… 

Optical interferometry of early-type stars with PAVO@CHARA – I. Fundamental stellar properties

We present interferometric observations of 7 main-sequence and 3 giant stars with spectral types from B2 to F6 using the PAVO beam combiner at the CHARA array. We have directly determined the angular

An Analysis of the Shapes of Ultraviolet Extinction Curves. IV. Extinction without Standards

In this paper we present a new method for deriving UV through IR extinction curves, based on the use of stellar atmosphere models to provide estimates of the intrinsic (i.e., unreddened) stellar

An analysis of the shapes of interstellar extinction curves. V. The IR-through-UV curve morphology

We study the IR-through-UV wavelength dependence of 328 Galactic interstellar extinction curves affecting normal, near-main-sequence B and late O stars. We derive the curves using a new technique

THE AGES OF EARLY-TYPE STARS: STRÖMGREN PHOTOMETRIC METHODS CALIBRATED, VALIDATED, TESTED, AND APPLIED TO HOSTS AND PROSPECTIVE HOSTS OF DIRECTLY IMAGED EXOPLANETS

Age determination is undertaken for nearby early type (BAF) stars, which constitute attractive targets for high-contrast debris disk and planet imaging surveys. Our analysis sequence consists of

Calibration of Synthetic Photometry Using DA White Dwarfs

We have calibrated four major ground-based photometric systems with respect to the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) absolute flux scale, which is defined by Vega and four fundamental DA white dwarfs.

Interferometric observations of hot stars

Accurate determination of fundamental stellar properties is of vital importance in understanding and testing models of stellar structure and evolution. To date, most stars with independent

Angular Sizes, Radii, and Effective Temperatures of B-type Stars from Optical Interferometry with the CHARA Array

Characterization of the gaseous companion κ Andromedae b - New Keck and LBTI high-contrast observations

Context. We previously reported the direct detection of a low mass companion at a projected separation of 55 2 AU around the B9 type star Andromedae. The properties of the system (mass ratio,

THE AGE OF THE DIRECTLY IMAGED PLANET HOST STAR κ ANDROMEDAE DETERMINED FROM INTERFEROMETRIC OBSERVATIONS

κ Andromedae, an early-type star that hosts a directly imaged low-mass companion, is expected to be oblate due to its rapid rotational velocity (v sin i = ∼162 km s−1). We observed the star with the

From photometric observations of ∼ 47,000 stars and spectroscopy of ∼ 11,000 stars, we describe the first extensive study of the stellar population of the famous Double Cluster, h and χ Persei, down
