Extreme enhancements of r-process elements in the cool metal-poor main-sequence star SDSS J2357-0052

Aoki, Wako; Beers, Timothy C; Honda, Satoshi; Carollo, Daniela

Description

We report the discovery of a cool metal-poor, main-sequence star exhibiting large excesses of r-process elements. This star is one of the two newly discovered cool subdwarfs (effective temperatures of 5000 K) with extremely low metallicity ([Fe/H] < -3) identified from follow-up high-resolution spectroscopy of metal-poor candidates from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. SDSS J2357-0052 has [Fe/H]= -3.4 and [Eu/Fe]= +1.9, and exhibits a scaled solar r-process abundance pattern of heavy...[Show more]
