In this article, we present the results of a series of 12 3.6 cm radio continuum observations of T Tau Sb, one of the companions of the famous young stellar object T Tauri. The data were collected roughly every 2 months between 2003 September and 2005 July with the Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA). Thanks to the remarkably accurate astrometry delivered by the VLBA, the absolute position of T Tau Sb could be measured with a precision typically better than about 100 μas at each of the 12 observed… Expand
