Stroemgren four-color photometry of X-ray active late-type stars: Evidence for activity-induced deficiency in the m1 index.


Abstract (from CDS):

We present the results of a uvby-β photometric study of a sample of active late-type stars (F-K) selected from the Einstein Extended Medium Sensitivity Survey. Our work shows the presence in the sample of a star population with the photometric index c1 typical of main sequence stars and an unexpected deficiency in m1 index. Stars with more anomalous values of m1 have also very high values of f_ X/fV_ and X-ray surface fluxes, near the "saturation" limit observed in the most active stars and similar to the flux observed in solar active regions. We discuss these results in the light of similar results found in the Sun comparing m1 indices in quiet and active regions and in other samples of active stars.
