Mid-Infrared Interferometry of Stellar Objects

The purpose of this grant to the University of California, Berkeley Department of Physics is to undertake further detailed studies of stellar characteristics by interferometry, which are challenging our current understanding of many stars. Use of the Infrared Spatial Interferometer has already made preliminary discoveries of a class of non-spherical stars, a quite unexpected result that may elucidate unanticipated and previously unknown stellar evolution processes.
