The Solar Twin Planet Search III. The [Y/Mg] clock: estimating stellar ages of solar-type stars
Context. Solar twins are stars with similar stellar (surface) parameters to the Sun that can have a wide range of ages. This provides an opportunity to analyze the variation of their chemical abundances with age. Nissen (2015, A&A, 579, A52) recently suggested that the abundances of the s-process element Y and the α-element Mg could be used to estimate stellar ages. Aims. This paper aims to determine with high precision the Y, Mg, and Fe abundances for a sample of 88 solar twins that span a...[Show more]
