Lithium in Large Magellanic Cloud carbon stars

Hatzidimitriou, D.; Morgan, D H; Cannon, Russell; Croke, Barry

Description

19 carbon stars that show lithium enrichment in their atmospheres have been discovered among a sample of 674 carbon stars in the Large Magellanic Cloud. Six of the Li-rich carbon stars are of the J type, i.e. they show strong 13C isotopic features. No super-Li-rich carbon stars were found. The incidence of lithium enrichment among carbon stars in the LMC is much rarer than in the Galaxy, and about five times more frequent among J-type than among N-type carbon stars. The bolometric magnitudes of...[Show more]
