Young stellar objects in the Large Magellanic Cloud: N63 and N180 HII regions. Caulet A., Gruendl R.A., Chu Y.-H. <Astrophys. J., 678, 200-218 (2008)> =2008ApJ...678..200C
ADC_Keywords: YSOs ; Photometry, infrared ; Magellanic Clouds ; H II regions Mission_Name: Spitzer Keywords: H II regions - Magellanic Clouds - stars: formation Abstract: We used Spitzer infrared observations to find the young stars of two HII regions in the Large Magellanic Cloud, N63 and N180. The young stellar object (YSO) candidates were identified in each nebula by means of color-color, color-magnitude diagrams, and the shapes of their spectral energy distributions (SEDs). The most luminous YSOs are found near the ionization fronts within strong 8um emission clumps. Most YSOs, less luminous, are seen in projection inside the HII regions. HST images show several Class I stars that have emerged along the borders of the HII regions; other YSOs are embedded in cometary clouds. The most luminous YSO of N63 is connected to a string of pointlike sources. Its SED can be modeled by a central source of stellar mass M* between 7 and 11M, with a circumstellar disk of outer radius Rd of ∼55AU, and an envelope of moderate accretion rate, Menv of ∼2x10-5M/yr. N180 is experiencing a phase of star formation more intense than N63, attested by the properties of its most luminous YSO: M* of 25M, Rd of ∼200AU, and Menv of ∼1.5x10-3M/yr. The modes of triggered star formation in N63 and N180 appear similar to those seen in Galactic HII regions. Description: The deep Spitzer observations of N63 and N180 are part of program ID 3565 "Massive Star Forming Regions in the LMC". They were obtained on 2004 December 16 with the Infrared Array Camera (IRAC) and on 2005 March 7 with the Multiband Imaging Photometer (MIPS). File Summary:

Note (1): Note on Field of view (FOV) as follows: c = FOV of 40'x40' shown in Figs. 4 and 8 for N63 and N180, respectively. Two AGB stars are located within the boundaries of Fig. 9. d = FOV of 10'x10' of ISPI images for N63 and N180; the galaxies are shown in Figs. 5, 6, and 9. Note (2): These objects were removed from our lists of classified YSOs. They are evolved stars (AGB) identified in the CMD diagrams or background galaxies (G) identified on ISPI images (see text). Note (3): e = There are two 2MASS superimposed sources at this position; the magnitudes of the other source are [J]=13.858±0.026, [H]=12.864±0.034, and [Ks]=11.841±0.271 .

Note (1): YSOs without 24um photometry have a "C" appended to their number in these tables, including N63 YSOs 8C, 16C, and 31C, which have 24um manual photometry. Note (2): The class "flat spectrum" is designated by "fs". Note (3): The 24um magnitudes listed here used the SSC aperture corrections, which likely underestimate fluxes by a factor of ∼20% (see Sect. 2.2). Note (4): separation of YSOs from the approximate center of * NGC 2030 (=LHA 120-N 63) at 05:35:32.3-66:02:38 (J2000.0), i.e., on star 2 (Fig. 6) in table5; * the brightest ionizing star of NGC 2122 at 05:48:49.6-70:03:58 (J2000.0) (=HD 270145), i.e. star 118 (Fig. 9) in table6 Note (5): Number of stars seen on J, Ks ISPI images within 3" of the YSO; "m" is for several stars. Note (6): Lower case letter flag for table 5, upper case letter for table 6.

Global note: Note (G1): The IRAC bands and the MIPS 24um magnitude errors are those resulting from the aperture photometry. There are additional errors of ∼0.11mag from the flux calibration uncertainties (Fazio et al., 2004ApJS..154...39F; Rieke et al., 2004ApJS..154...25R).
