An absolutely calibrated T eff scale from the infrared flux method. Dwarfs and subgiants

Casagrande, L; Ramirez, I; Melendez, Jorge; Bessell, Michael; Asplund, Martin


Various effective temperature scales have been proposed over the years. Despite much work and the high internal precision usually achieved, systematic differences of order 100 K (or more) among various scales are still present. We present an investigation based on the infrared flux method aimed at assessing the source of such discrepancies and pin down their origin. We break the impasse among different scales by using a large set of solar twins, stars which are spectroscopically and...[Show more]
