Observations and analysis of Be star circumstellar environments with the long baseline CHARA Array interferometer

Publication Date



We present our approach in studying and determining the physical and geometrical properties of the circumstellar disks around Be stars. We use observational results on several Be stars obtained with the long baseline CHARA Array interferometer in the K-band. We were able to define for each case the envelope characteristics (projected shape and orientation) and to constrain the gas density and temperature profile interferometrically. © 2010: Instituto de Astronomía, UNAM.
