J/A+A/526/A127 Velocities of M67 main-sequence and giant stars (Pasquini+, 2011)

Gravitational redshifts in main-sequence and giant stars. Pasquini L., Melo C., Chavero C., Dravins D., Ludwig H.-G., Bonifacio P., De La Reza R. <Astron. Astrophys. 526, A127 (2011)> =2011A&A...526A.127P

Aims. Gravitational redshifts in solar-type main-sequence stars are expected to be some 500m/s greater than those in giants. We search for this difference in redshifts among groups of open-cluster stars that share the same average space motion and thus have the same average Doppler shift. Description: We observed 144 main-sequence stars and cool giants in the M67 open cluster using the ESO FEROS spectrograph and obtained radial velocities by means of cross-correlation with a spectral template. Binaries and doubtful members were not analyzed, and average spectra were created for different classes of stars. File Summary:
