Multiplicity is one of the most fundamental observable properties of massive O-type stars and offers a promising way to discriminate between massive star formation theories. Nevertheless, companions at separations between 1 and 100 milliarcsec (mas) remain mostly unknown due to intrinsic observational limitations. At a typical distance of 2 kpc, this corresponds to projected physical separations of 2–200 AU. The Southern MAssive Stars at High angular resolution survey (smash+) was designed to… Expand
The Multiplicity of Massive Stars: A High Angular Resolution Survey with the HST Fine Guidance Sensor
We present the results of an all-sky survey made with the Fine Guidance Sensor on Hubble Space Telescope to search for angularly resolved binary systems among the massive stars. The sample of 224Expand
The young massive SMC cluster NGC 330 seen by MUSE
Observations of massive stars in young open clusters (< ~8 Myr) have shown that a majority of them are in binary systems, most of which will interact during their life. Populations of massive starsExpand
