Parameters of two low-mass contact eclipsing binaries near the short-period limit.


Abstract (from CDS):

The two objects 1SWASP J150822.80-054236.9 and 1SWASP J160156.04+202821.6 were initially detected from their SuperWASP archived light curves as candidate eclipsing binaries with periods close to the short-period cut-off of the orbital period distribution of main-sequence binaries, at ∼0.2d. Using spectroscopic data from the Isaac Newton Telescope in La Palma, Canary Islands, we here confirm them as double-lined spectroscopic and eclipsing binaries, in contact configuration. Following modelling of their visual light curves and radial velocity curves, we determine their component and system parameters to precisions between ∼2 and 11%. The first system contains components of 1.07 and 0.55M, with radii of 0.90 and 0.68R, respectively; its primary exhibits pulsations with a period of 1/6 of the orbital period of the system. The latter contains components of 0.86 and 0.57M, with radii of 0.75 and 0.63R, respectively.
