Abstract
In this work we present the results of our study on a particular class of Galactic and extragalactic evolved stars, which are part of a binary system, and surrounded by a stable dusty disc. By combining spectroscopic, photometric and interferometric observations with detailed models describing dust properties and disc structure, we investigate the exact disc composition and structure. With this study we hope to trace the evolution of these evolved binaries and their disc, and determine the impact of the disc on the entire system.
