J/A+A/528/A92   HERES VI. Galactic chemical evolution of Si and C (Zhang+, 2011)

The Hamburg/ESO R-process Enhanced Star survey (HERES). VI. The Galactic chemical evolution of silicon. Zhang L., Karlsson T., Christlieb N., Korn A.J., Barklem P.S., Zhao G. <Astron. Astrophys., 528, A92 (2011)> =2011A&A...528A..92Z
ADC_Keywords: Stars, nearby ; Abundances Keywords: line: formation - line: profiles - stars: abundances - stars: Population III - Galaxy: abundances - Galaxy: halo Abstract: To obtain detailed silicon abundances of metal-poor stars, we aim to explore the correlation between the abundance ratios and the stellar parameters and the chemical enrichment of the interstellar medium (ISM). We determined the silicon abundances of 253 metal-poor stars in the metallicity range -4<[Fe/H]←1.5, based on non-local thermodynamic equilibrium (NLTE) line formation calculations of neutral silicon and high-resolution spectra obtained with VLT-UT2/UVES. Description: The present work is based on the spectra of 253 HERES stars. The sample selection and observations are described in Christlieb et al. (2004A&A...428.1027C). For the convenience of the reader, we repeat here that the spectra were obtained with the Ultraviolet-Visual Echelle Spectrograph (UVES) mounted on the 8m Unit Telescope 2 (Kueyen) of the Very Large Telescope (VLT).
