Spectral analysis of the extreme helium star LSS 3184.


Abstract (from CDS):

LSS 3184 is a hydrogen-deficient, early B-type giant, recently found to pulsate with a period of 2.5 hours. Its photospheric parameters have been derived from optical high-resolution spectra by the method of fine analysis. The principal results are Teff=23300 K, logg=3.35, nH/nHe≲0.00015, nC/nHe=0.003, nN/nHe=0.0005, and nO/nHe=0.0003. Hydrogen is extremely deficient. The effective temperature is consistent with broad-band visual and ultraviolet spectrophotometry and an extinction EB–V∼0.27. Its previous evolution is reflected in the chemistry of the atmosphere, which contains enriched nitrogen from CNO-cycle hydrogen burning, and carbon from 3α helium burning. Thus LSS3184 is a true extreme helium star with a composition similar to BD-9 4395. With Teff, logg, and pulsation properties very similar to the C-poor and N-rich helium star V652 Her, evolutionary mechanisms which can result in very different surface compositions for the two stars must be examined.
