Asymmetries in the Spectral Lines of Evolved Halo Stars
We do an initial reconnaissance of asymmetries of spectral lines in metal-poor field stars using high-resolution observations of four red horizontal-branch and 11 red giant branch stars taken with the coude spectrograph at the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope. We find that (1) the shapes of the line bisectors for metal-poor stars hotter than 4100 K mimic the well-known C shape of bisectors for solar-metallicity stars on the cool side of the granulation boundary while (2) metal-poor stars cooler...[Show more]
