J/AJ/133/99    JHKs surface brightness of Galactic globular.   (Cohen+, 2007)

Integrated-light two micron all sky survey infrared photometry of Galactic globular clusters. Cohen J.G., Hsieh S., Metchev S., Djorgovski S.G., Malkan M. <Astron. J., 133, 99-121 (2007)> =2007AJ....133...99C
ADC_Keywords: Clusters, globular ; Photometry, infrared Keywords: galaxies: star clusters - globular clusters: general Abstract: We have mosaicked Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS) images to derive surface brightness profiles in J, H, and Ks for 104 Galactic globular clusters. We fit these with King profiles and show that the core radii are identical to within the errors for each of these IR colors and are identical to the core radii at V in essentially all cases. We derive integrated-light colors V-J, V-H, V-Ks, J-H, and J-Ks for these globular clusters. File Summary:

Note (1): Core-collapsed globular cluster code as follows: C = known core-collapsed globular cluster C? = known probable core-collapsed globular cluster Note (2): Preferentially from Trager, King & Djorgovski (1995, Cat. J/AJ/109/218), or from Harris (1996AJ....112.1487H). RcoreV from Harris (1996AJ....112.1487H) for all probable core-collapsed GCs. Note (3): Beccari et al. (2006AJ....131.2551B) give Vrad=19" for NGC 6266 and find that it is not a core-collapsed GC. Note (4): Values are given as measured, without reddening corrections. The JHK surface brightness values are in units of DN/arcsec2.
