Quantitative spectroscopy of the HeI cluster in the Galactic Center.

Abstract (from CDS):

We present first results on quantitative infrared spectroscopy of the brightest HeI emission line stars in the Galactic center. The observed HeI and H broad emission lines are caused by extremely strong stellar winds ({dot}(M)∼5 to 80x10–5M/yr) with relatively small outflow velocities (V∼300 to 1000km/s). The effective temperatures of the objects range from 17,000K to 30,000K with corresponding stellar luminosities of 1 to 30x105L. Strongly enhanced helium abundances (NHe/NH>.5) are found. These results indicate that the HeI emission line stars are evolved blue supergiants close to the evolutionary stage of Wolf-Rayet stars. They power the central parsec and belong to a young stellar cluster of massive stars which formed a few million years ago.
