Line identification in high-resolution, near-infrared CRIRES spectra of chemically peculiar and Herbig Ae stars.


Abstract (from CDS):

Contrary to the late-type stars, our knowledge of atomic transitions in intermediate-mass stars is still very poor. The recent availability of ESO's high-resolution spectrograph CRIRES offers now the opportunity to study numerous spectral features in the near-IR in intermediate-mass main-sequence and pre-main-sequence stars. The aim of the study is to explore the diagnostic potential of near-IR spectral regions. We carry out the first line identification in a few spectral regions for the two strongly magnetic Ap stars γEqu and HD154708, and their potential precursors two pre-main sequence Herbig Ae/Be stars HD101412 and 51Oph. High-resolution CRIRES spectra were obtained in three spectral regions, two regions around 1µm and one region around 1.57µm containing magnetically sensitive FeI lines. To study the spectral line variability in the Herbig Ae star HD101412, the observations were collected on six different rotation phases. All currently available atomic line lists were involved to properly identify the detected spectral features. The largest number of near-IR spectral features was detected and identified in the well-studied magnetic Ap star γEqu. Nearly 30% of the spectral lines in the Ap star HD154708 with one of the strongest magnetic fields known among the Ap stars of the order of 25kG, remain unidentified due to a lack of atomic data. Only very few lines belonging to the rare earth element group have been identified in both Ap stars. A number of spectral lines including the CeIII and DyII lines appear magnetically split due to the presence of a strong magnetic field in their atmospheres. The content of the spectra of the Herbig Ae/Be stars HD101412 and 51Oph is rather unexciting. Variable behaviour of lines of the elements He, N, Mg, Si, and Fe over the rotation period in the spectra of HD101412 confirm our previous finding of variability in the optical region. Due to the very fast rotation of 51Oph, only a few spectral lines have been identified with certainty.
