The dual dust chemistries of planetary nebulae with [WCL] central stars.

COHEN M., BARLOW M.J., LIU X.-W. and JONES A.F.

Abstract (from CDS):

The rather rare class of central stars of planetary nebulae that show very low-excitation Wolf-Rayet spectra has been a subject of great interest, particularly in the infrared, since its discovery in the late 1960s. Further peculiarities have been found with the advent of infrared spectroscopy from ISO. Notably, these objects simultaneously betray the presence of regions of carbon-rich and oxygen-rich dust chemistry. We compare and contrast complete ISO spectra between 2 and 200µm of a sample of six [WC8] to [WC11] central stars, finding many similarities. Among this sample, one star provides strong evidence of quasi-periodic light variations, suggestive of a dust cloud orbiting in a plane from which we view the system.
