Abstract: I will review infrared interferometric observations of young stars and their circumstellar material. Even simple, single-baseline, interferometric measurements caused substantial revision of standard ideas about protoplanetary disks. We have moved beyond this early era and are now able to use multiple baselines, high spectral dispersion, and even basic image reconstruction to probe young stellar objects. I will discuss the physical insights enabled by these instrumental improvements and indicate areas where I think future interferometers will advance our understanding of star and planet formation.
