J/ApJ/626/446      Effective temperature scale of FGK stars     (Ramirez+, 2005)

The effective temperature scale of FGK stars. I. Determination of temperatures and angular diameters with the infrared flux method. Ramirez I., Melendez J. <Astrophys. J., 626, 446-464 (2005)> =2005ApJ...626..446R
ADC_Keywords: Stars, pre-main sequence ; Stars, giant ; Effective temperatures Keywords: infrared: stars - stars: atmospheres - stars: fundamental parameters Abstract: The infrared flux method (IRFM) has been applied to a sample of 135 dwarf and 36 giant stars covering the following regions of the atmospheric parameter space: (1) the metal-rich ([Fe/H]≳0) end (consisting mostly of planet-hosting stars), (2) the cool (Teff≲5000K) metal-poor (-1≲[Fe/H]≲-3) dwarf region, and (3) the very metal-poor ([Fe/H]≲-2.5) end.
