Optically visible post-AGB/RGB stars and young stellar objects in the small magellanic cloud: Candidate selection, spectral energy distributions and spectroscopic examination

Kamath, Devika; van Winckel, Hans; Wood, Peter R


We have carried out a search for optically visible post-asymptotic giant branch (post-AGB) candidates in the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC). First, we used mid-IR observations from the Spitzer Space Telescope to select optically visible candidates with excess mid-IR flux and then we obtained low-resolution optical spectra for 801 of the candidates. After removing poorquality spectra and contaminants, such as M-stars, C-stars, planetary nebulae, quasi-stellar objects and background galaxies, we...[Show more]
