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…

Direct measurement of stellar angular diameters by the VERITAS Cherenkov telescopes

The angular size of a star is a critical factor in determining its basic properties1. Direct measurement of stellar angular diameters is difficult: at interstellar distances stars are generally too

A Recipe for Finding Stellar Radii, Temperatures, Surface Gravities, Metallicities, and Masses Using Spectral Lines

A recipe based on physical principles employs the observed equivalent widths of 10 spectral lines to model the photosphere of a target star. Coupled with the visual magnitude and an absolute flux

Spatial intensity interferometry on three bright stars

Spectroscopy of the K0 Binary Giant α UMa

High-resolution spectroscopic observations of the K0 II–III star α UMa were taken at the Elginfield Observatory over 11 years. Radial velocities were measured for nine of these years. They do not

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 present

A Spectroscopic Analysis of the Hyades Cool Giants

High-resolution spectroscopic observations of the four cool giants in the Hyades cluster, taken at the Elginfield Observatory, are analyzed. The velocity of γ Tau between 2002 and 2009 is constant to

The relationship between photometric and spectroscopic oscillation amplitudes from 3D stellar atmosphere simulations.

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.
