J/ApJ/847/142 Ultra-metal-poor stars LTE and NLTE abundances (Ezzeddine+, 2017)

Ultra-metal-poor stars: spectroscopic determination of stellar atmospheric parameters using iron non-LTE line abundances. Ezzeddine R., Frebel A., Plez B. <Astrophys. J., 847, 142 (2017)> =2017ApJ...847..142E
ADC_Keywords: Abundances, [Fe/H]; Stars, metal-deficient; Equivalent widths; Models Keywords: line: formation ; stars: abundances ; stars: atmospheres ; stars: fundamental parameters ; stars: Population II Abstract: We present new ultra-metal-poor stars parameters with [Fe/H] < -4.0 based on line-by-line non-local thermodynamic equilibrium (NLTE) abundances using an up-to-date iron model atom with a new recipe for non-elastic hydrogen collision rates. We study the departures from LTE in their atmospheric parameters and show that they can grow up to ∼1.00dex in [Fe/H], ∼150K in Teff and ∼0.5dex in logg toward the lowest metallicities. Accurate NLTE atmospheric stellar parameters, in particular [Fe/H] being significantly higher, are the first step to eventually providing full NLTE abundance patterns that can be compared with Population III supernova nucleosynthesis yields to derive properties of the first stars. Overall, this maximizes the potential of these likely second-generation stars to investigate the early universe and how the chemical elements were formed. File Summary:
