We report new interferometric angular diameter observations of 41 carbon stars observed with the Palomar Testbed Interferometer. Two of these stars are CH carbon stars and represent the first such measurements of this subtype. Of these, 39 have Yamashita spectral classes and are of sufficiently high quality that we can determine the dependence of effective temperature on spectral type. We find that there is a tendency for the effective temperature to increase with increasing temperature index… 

IR photometry and models for the dust envelopes of two carbon stars

The results of JHKLM photometry of two carbon stars are presented: the irregular variable NQ Cas and the Mira star BD Vul. Data on the mean fluxes supplemented with mid-IR observations with the IRAS,

The fundamentals: angular diameter measurements of zero-crossing stars from the NPOI

We recently used archival and newly obtained data from the Navy Precision Optical Interferometer to measure the fundamental properties of 87 stars. The sample consisted of 5 dwarfs, 3 subgiants, 69

Constraining Stellar Parameters and Atmospheric Dynamics of the Carbon AGB star V Oph

Molecules and dust produced by the atmospheres of cool evolved stars contribute to a significant amount of the total material found in the interstellar medium. To understand the mechanism behind the

HD 54361: evidence for the status of a low mass TP-AGB star

The mass of the cool carbon star HD 54361 was suspected to be high, assuming the membership in the stellar association CMa OB1, in conflict with the theory of stellar evolution. The Gaia parallax and

Aperture synthesis imaging of the carbon AGB star R Sculptoris - Detection of a complex structure and a dominating spot on the stellar disk

Aims. We present near-infrared interferometry of the carbon-rich asymptotic giant branch (AGB) star R Sculptoris (R Scl). Methods. We employ medium spectral resolution K-band interferometry obtained

The Rotation of the Halo of NGC 6822 Determined From the Radial Velocities of Carbon Stars

The kinematics of stars in galaxies is becoming a key means to understand the dynamics of galaxies, their formation and merger history. For many years, kinematics has been measured using integrated

Angular Diameters and Fundamental Parameters of Forty-four Stars from the Navy Precision Optical Interferometer

We measured the angular diameters of 44 stars with the Navy Precision Optical Interferometer, obtaining uncertainties on the limb-darkened diameter of 2% or less for all but four stars. We then used

The late evolutionary stages of stellar evolution are a key ingredient for our understanding in many fields of astrophysics, including stellar evolution and the enrichment of the interstellar medium

Departure from centrosymmetry of red giants and supergiants measured with VLTI/AMBER ⋆

We study a sample of 16 bright and well-resolved late-type stars (10 O-rich giants, 2 red supergiants, and 4 C-rich giants) using the ESO VLTI/AMBER facility at medium resolution (ℛ = 1500) in the K
