Author Affiliations +
Observing late type stars with an interferometer is rather easy" because of their brightness in the near-infrared and their extended atmosphere. On the other hand the interpretation of interferometric observations is very tricky, especially when it comes to asymmetric structures detected via phase measurements. Our team developed dedicated 2D Roche lobe models to interpret observations of binary candidates. The models are generated through a software that simulates binary systems in a realistic way, using a Roche representation of the stellar surfaces and the MARCS stellar atmosphere models. In this contribution we present the method and show examples of synthetic interferometric data.
