IC 2602: A lithium depletion boundary age and new candidate low-mass stellar members

Dobbie, Paul; Lodieu, N; Sharp, Robert

Description

We report the results from a photometric and spectroscopic survey of ~1.4 deg2 of the young open cluster IC 2602. Fourteen objects have been identified as having magnitudes, spectral types and radial velocities consistent with being probable or possible low-mass stellar members of the cluster. We have used the observed location of the lithium depletion boundary in the sequence defined by these objects to place a new and improved constraint on the cluster age, τ= 46+6-5 Myr. This new...[Show more]
