III/164     Catalog of Eq.Widths of Interstellar 217nm Band (Friedemann 1992)

A Master Catalogue of Equivalent Widths of the Interstellar 217nm band Friedemann C. <CDS Inf. Bull., No. 40, p. 31 (1992)> =1992BICDS..40...31F
ADC_Keywords: Equivalent widths; Interstellar medium; Spectra, ultraviolet; Photometry, ultraviolet Description: (from CDS Inf. Bull. 40, 31) The main task of the catalogue consists in a comprehensive collection of equivalent widths of the 217nm band derived from both spectrophotometric and filterphotometric measurements obtained with TD-1, OAO-2 and ANS satellites. These data concern reddened O, B stars with color excesses E(B-V) ≥ 0.02 mag. The extinction curve is approximated by the empirical formula introduced by Guertler et al. (1982AN....303..105G) e(λ) = A(i/λ - 1/λo)n + B + C κ(λ) The relative errors amount to about δA/A = ± 0.10, δB/B = ± 0.02 and δC/C = ± 0.03. File Summary:

Note on W: A negative value indicates that a flat minimum instead of a maximum has been found in the extinction curve in the wavelength region of the 2200Å band. In these cases W was computed with lam_c = 2182Å. Note on rem: the following symbols are used: O: Filterphotometry from OAO-2 J: Spectral flux data from LSR of IUE C: The wavelength of the centre of the absorption band has been fixed to the average value lam_c = 2182Å because the searching procedure for lam_c had led to a value lam_c outside the presumed interval from 2182 - 2228Å. The parameters A B C and W were computed with the average value lam_c = 2182Å. D: within one arcminute of the pointing position at least two stars are present (Wesselius et al. 1982A&AS...49..427W) V: Ultraviolet ANS data (Wesselius et al., 1982A&AS...49..427W) indicate variability
