J/A+A/525/A63       Abundances in Ba stars               (Allen+, 2011)

Mn, Cu, and Zn abundances in barium stars and their correlations with neutron capture elements. Allen D.M., Porto de Mello G.F. <Astron. Astrophys. 525, A63 (2011)> =2011A&A...525A..63A
ADC_Keywords: Stars, peculiar ; Abundances Keywords: stars: chemically peculiar - stars: abundances - techniques: spectroscopic - stars: AGB and post-AGB - stars: atmospheres Abstract: We present abundances of Mn, Cu, Zn, and various light and heavy elements for a sample of barium and normal giant stars, and present correlations between abundances contributed to different degrees by the weak-s, main-s, and r-processes of neutron capture, between Fe-peak elements and heavy elements. All spectra for the sample stars were obtained with the 1.52m telescope at ESO, La Silla, using the Fiber Fed Extended Range Optical Spectrograph (FEROS). FEROS spectra have a constant resolving power of R=48000 from 3600Å to 9200Å. The stellar sample targeted in our study includes eight mild and classical barium stars and six normal giants, with a spectral S/N ratio ranging from 200 to 450 in the visible range. Description: Table 2 contains the lines, atomic constants, equivalent widths, and abundance results for the elements other than iron, and Table 3 contains the average for the abundances and their uncertainties.
