Young and embedded clusters in Cygnus-X: evidence for building up the initial mass function?


Abstract (from CDS):

We provide a new view on the Cygnus-X north complex by accessing for the first time the low mass content of young stellar populations in the region. Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope/Wide-Field Infrared Camera was used to perform a deep near-infrared survey of this complex, sampling stellar masses down to ∼0.1 M. Several analysis tools, including a extinction treatment developed in this work, were employed to identify and uniformly characterize a dozen unstudied young star clusters in the area. Investigation of their mass distributions in low-mass domain revealed a relatively uniform log-normal initial mass function (IMF) with a characteristic mass of 0.32±0.08 M and mass dispersion of 0.40±0.06. In the high-mass regime, their derived slopes showed that while the youngest clusters (age
