Description

We present results from a spectro-interferometric study of the Miras o Cet, R Leo, and W Hya obtained with the Keck Aperture Masking Experiment from 1998 September to 2002 July. The spectrally dispersed visibility data permit fitting with circularly symmetric brightness profiles such as a simple uniform disk (UD). The stellar angular diameter obtained over up to ∼ 450 spectral channels spanning the region 1.1-3.8 μm is presented. Use of a simple UD brightness model facilitates comparison...[Show more]
