Multiple stellar populations in three rich large magellanic cloud star clusters

Mackey, Alasdair; Broby Nielsen, P; Ferguson, A. M. N.; Richardson, J C


We present deep color-magnitude diagrams for three rich intermediate-age star clusters in the LMC, constructed from archival ACS F435W and F814W imaging. All three clusters exhibit clear evidence for peculiar main-sequence turnoffs. NGC 1846 and 1806 each possess two distinct turnoff branches, while the turnoff for NGC 1783 shows a much larger spread in color than can be explained by the photometric uncertainties. We demonstrate that although all three clusters contain significant populations...[Show more]
