J/A+A/430/223     Parameters of cool companions of sdB stars     (Lisker+, 2005)

Hot subdwarfs from the ESO Supernova Ia Progenitor Survey. I. Atmospheric parameters and cool companions of sdB stars. Lisker T., Heber U., Napiwotzki R., Christlieb N., Han Z., Homeier D., Reimers D. <Astron. Astrophys., 430, 223-243 (2005)> =2005A&A...430..223L

Effective temperature, surface gravity, and photospheric helium abundance are determined simultaneously by fitting the profiles of hydrogen and helium lines using synthetic spectra calculated from LTE and NLTE model atmospheres. We perform a detailed comparison of our measurements with theoretical calculations, both for single star evolution and for binary population synthesis models of close binary evolution. Description: Observations were obtained at the ESO Very Large Telescope with UT2 (Kueyen) equipped with the UV-Visual Echelle Spectrograph. File Summary:

Note (1): Teff, logg and logY are mean values from two or more exposures, if possible. Note (2): Luminosity in units of solar luminosity is calculated by assuming MsdB=0.5 Note (3): Notes as follows: 1 = stars for which there was only one useful exposure. 2 = a cool companion shows Mg I in the spectrum, and possibly additional features. 3 = the presence of a companion was deduced solely from a flux contribution at Hα. Atmospheric parameters have been determined from Balmer and helium lines in the blue part of the spectrum. Unlike for the stars with earlier type companions, the contribution of the companion in this spectral region is irrelevant, and the parameters can be regarded as reliable (for details see Sect. 5.1). 4 = single-lined objects showing peculiar Hα profiles. 5 = independently classified as sdB by Altmann et al., 2004A&A...414..181A. 6 = central star of the planetary nebula PN G 125.9-47.0 7 = central star of the planetary nebula PN G 211.9+22.6 8 = also in the Palomar-Green survey (PG, Green et al., 1996, Cat. II/207) 9 = also in the Edinburgh-Cape survey (EC, Stobie et al., 1987, in Second Conference on Faint Blue Stars IAU Coll., 95, 493) 10 = also in the Montreal-Cambridge-Tololo survey (MCT, Demers et al., 1987, in Second Conference on Faint Blue Stars IAU Coll., 95, 497) 11 = In Table 1 of alt04, V magnitudes of this star and HE 2156-1732 have to be interchanged (M. Altmann, priv. comm.).
