In addition, we discovered two Be/Ae stars. This intermediate band photometric system samples the depth of the 520nm flux depression by comparing the flux at the center with the adjacent regions with bandwidths of 11nm to 23nm. The Delta a photometric system is most suitable for detecting CP2 stars with high efficiency, but is also capable of detecting a small percentage of non-magnetic CP objects. From our investigations of NGC 1711, NGC 1866, NGC 2136/7, their surroundings, and one independent field of the LMC population, we derive an occurrence of classical chemically peculiar stars of 2.2(6)% in the LMC, which is only half the value found in the Milky Way. The mass and age distribution of the photometrically detected CP stars is not different from that of similar objects in galactic open clusters. Description: Photometric CCD Delta a measurements of objects within the LMC cluster NGC 2136/7 and its surrounding were obtained at CASLEO and ESO-La Silla.
