Spectrophotometric libraries, revised photonic passbands, and zero points for UBVRI, Hipparcos, and tycho photometry

Bessell, Michael; Murphy, Simon


We have calculated improved photonic pass bands for the UBVRI, Hipparcos Hp, and Tycho BT and VT standard systems using the extensive spectrophotometric libraries of NGSL and MILES. Using the Hp passband, we adjusted the absolute flux levels of stars in the spectrophotometric libraries so that their synthetic Hp magnitudes matched the precise Hipparcos Catalogue value. Synthetic photometry based on the renormalized fluxes was compared with the standard UBVRI, BT and VT magnitudes, and revised...[Show more]
