Carbon stars in the Infrared Telescope in Space Survey.

Abstract (from CDS):

We have identified 139 cool carbon stars in the near-infrared spectrophotometric survey of the Infrared Telescope in Space (IRTS) from the conspicuous presence of molecular absorption bands at 1.8, 3.1, and 3.8 µm. Among them, 14 are new bright (K∼4.0-7.0) carbon stars. We find a trend relating the 3.1 µm band strength to the K-L' color index, which is known to correlate with mass-loss rate. This could be an effect of a relation between the depth of the 3.1 µm feature and the degree of development of the extended stellar atmosphere where dust starts to form.
