A new detailed examination of white dwarfs in NGC 3532 and NGC 2287
We present the results of a photometric and spectroscopic study of the white dwarf candidate members of the intermediate age open clusters NGC 3532 and NGC 2287. Of the nine objects investigated, it is determined that six are probable members of the clusters, four in NGC 3532 and two in NGC 2287. For these six white dwarfs, we use our estimates of their cooling times together with the cluster ages to constrain the lifetimes and masses of their progenitor stars. We examine the location of these...[Show more]
