We present the fundamental properties of 87 stars based on angular diameter measurements from the Navy Precision Optical Interferometer, 36 of which have not been measured previously using interferometry. Our sample consists of 5 dwarfs, 3 subgiants, 69 giants, 3 bright giants, and 7 supergiants, and span a wide range of spectral classes from B to M. We combined our angular diameters with photometric and distance information from the literature to determine each star's physical radius… Expand

Detecting exoplanets and characterizing their properties with fringe nulling
Detecting exoplanets and characterizing their orbital properties is a difficult task, given the proximity of these objects relative to their host stars, as well as their brightness ratios. We presentExpand
Precise calibration of the dependence of surface brightness–colour relations on colour and class for late-type stars
Surface brightness-colour relations (SBCRs) are used to derive the stellar angular diameters from photometric observations. They have various astrophysical applications, such as the distanceExpand

TLDR
A quantitative relationship between photometric and spectroscopic detections of solar-like oscillations is established using ab initio, 3D, hydrodynamical numerical simulations of stellar atmospheres and a theoretical derivation is presented as a proof of concept for the method. Expand
