First AMBER astrophysical results presented at ESO conference
Monday 13 June 2005, by Fabien Malbet

The first astrophysical results of AMBER obtained during commissioning and guaranteed observations have been presented at the ESO workshop The Power of Optical/IR Interferometry: Recent Scientific Results and 2nd Generation VLTI Instrumentation held in ESO Garching (Germany) from 4 to 8 April 2005.

Two presentations were in the programme:
- Spectral observations of hot massive stars (Eta Car, Be stars,...) including closure phase and differential phase constrains by R. Petrov et al.
- Disentangling the wind and the disk in the close surrounding of the young stellar object MWC297 with AMBER/VLTI by F. Malbet et al.

These results will be published in the proceedings of the workshop (eds. Paresce, Richichi, Deplancke, Chelli). They will also soon be submitted to the Astronomy & Astrophysics main journal.
