J/AJ/131/612      Infrared-optical phase lags in AGB stars        (Smith+, 2006)

Phase lags in the optical-infrared light curves of asymptotic giant branch stars. Smith B.J., Price S.D., Moffett A.J. <Astron. J., 131, 612-620 (2006)> =2006AJ....131..612S
ADC_Keywords: Stars, late-type ; Infrared sources ; Stars, variable Keywords: infrared: stars - stars: AGB and post-AGB - stars: variables: other Abstract: To search for phase lags in the optical-infrared light curves of asymptotic giant branch stars, we have compared infrared data from the COBE DIRBE satellite with optical light curves from the AAVSO and other sources. We found 17 examples of phase lags between the times of infrared and optical maximum, and 4 stars with no observed lags. File Summary:

Note (1): Flag on Name, defined as follows: a = Optical light curve from Percy, Wilson & Henry (2001PASP..113..983P) b = Optical light curve from Buchler, Kollath & Cadmus (2004ApJ...613..532B) Note (2): C/O type, defined as follows: O = oxygen-rich star C = carbon-rich star S = S-star
