Mid-Infrared Spectroscopy of Carbon Stars in the Small Magellanic Cloud

Sloan, G C; Kraemer, Kathleen E; Matsuura, Mikako; Wood, Peter R; Price, Stephan D; Egan, Michael P


We have observed a sample of 36 objects in the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) with the Infrared Spectrometer on the Spitzer Space Telescope. Nineteen of these sources are carbon stars. An examination of the near- and mid-infrared photometry shows that the carbon-rich and oxygen-rich dust sources follow two easily separated sequences. A comparison of the spectra of the 19 carbon stars in the SMC to spectra from the Infrared Space Observatory (ISO) of carbon stars in the Galaxy reveals significant...[Show more]
