Abstract (from CDS):
We present the results of an optical photometry and high-resolution spectroscopy campaign for a modest sample of X-ray selected stars in the Chamaeleon and Rho Ophiuchus star-forming regions. With R∼ 50 000 optical spectra, we establish kinematic membership of the parent association and confirm stellar youth for each star in our sample. With the acquisition of new standardized BVIc photometry, in concert with near-infrared data from the literature, we derive age and mass from stellar positions in model-dependent Hertzsprung-Russell diagrams. We compare isochronal ages derived using colour-dependent extinction values finding that, within error bars, ages are the same irrespective of whether E(B - V), E(V - Ic), E(J - H) or E(H - K) is used to establish extinction, although model ages tend to be marginally younger for redder Ecolour values. For Cham I and η Cham members, we derive ages of <=5-6 Myr, whereas our three η Cha candidates are more consistent with a >=25 Myr post-T Tauri star population. In Rho Ophiuchus, most stars in our sample have isochronal ages Av > 5) in the Two Micron All Sky Survey colour-colour diagram, however in terms of Hα emission, all stars except RXJ1625.6-2613 are consistent with being weak-lined T-Tauri stars.
