Near-infrared properties of 12 globular clusters towards the inner bulge of the galaxy. Valenti E., Ferraro F.R., Origlia L. <Mon. Not. R. Astron. Soc., 402, 1729-1739 (2010)> =2010MNRAS.402.1729V
ADC_Keywords: Clusters, globular ; Photometry, infrared Keywords: techniques: photometric - Galaxy: bulge - globular clusters: general - infrared: stars Abstract: We present near-infrared colour-magnitude diagrams and physical parameters for a sample of 12 galactic globular clusters located towards the inner bulge region. For each cluster we provide measurements of the reddening, distance and photometric metallicity and of the luminosity of the horizontal branch red clump and the red giant branch bump and tip. The sample discussed here, together with that presented in Valenti, Ferraro & Origlia (2007, Cat. J/AJ/133/1287), represents the largest homogeneous catalogue of bulge globular clusters (comprising ∼80 per cent of the entire bulge cluster population) ever studied. The compilation is available in electronic form on the World Wide Web ( Description: A set of J, H and K images of 12 bulge clusters, namely Ter 1, 2, 4, 9, Lill 1, HP 1, Djo 1, 2, NGC 6540, 6544, 6522 and 6453, was obtained at the European Southern Observatory (ESO), La Silla, during two observing runs in 2007 July and 2008 June. We used the near-IR camera SofI, mounted on the ESO New Technology Telescope (NTT) in large field-mode, which is characterized by a pixel size of 0.288arcsec and a total field of view of 4.9x4.9arcmin2.

Note (1): For all the clusters marked with (*) the metallicity estimates ([Fe/H] and [M/H]) have been derived by using the empirical method of Ferraro, Valenti & Origlia (2006ApJ...649..243F; see also IR relations at Note (2): [Fe/H] is in the Carretta & Gratton (1997, J/A+AS/121/95) scale. Note (3): The Bolometric magnitudes of the RGB Bump and Tip have been derived by using the bolometric corrections for Population II giants computed by Montegriffo et al. (1998MNRAS.297..872M), and by adopting the reddening and distance values listed in Table 1 and the extinction coefficients of Savage & Mathis (1979ARA&A..17...73S).
