J/PASP/115/22    Stellar parameters for 134 cool subdwarfs   (Yong+, 2003)

A search for cool subdwarfs: stellar parameters for 134 candidates. Yong D., Lambert D.L. <Publ. Astron. Soc. Pac. 115, 22 (2003)> =2003PASP..115...22Y
ADC_Keywords: Stars, subdwarf ; Space velocities ; Effective temperatures ; Abundances, [Fe/H] Abstract: The results of a search for cool subdwarfs are presented. Kinematic (U, V, and W) and stellar parameters (Teff, logg, [Fe/H], and Vturb) are derived for 134 candidate subdwarfs based on high-resolution spectra. The observed stars span 4200K<Teff<6400K and -2.70<[Fe/H]<0.25 including only eight giants (logg<4.0). Of the sample, 100 stars have MgH bands present in their spectra. The targets were selected by their large reduced proper motion, by the offset from the solar-metallicity main sequence, or from the literature. We confirm the claims made by Ryan (1989, Cat. J/AJ/98/1693) that the NLTT catalog is a rich source of subdwarfs and verify the success of the reduced proper-motion constraint in identifying metal-poor stars. Description: Table 1 contains the list of candidates observed at McDonald Observatory on the 2.7m Harlan J. Smith telescope and on the 9.2m Hobby-Eberly telescope (HET) between 1999 November and 2002 April. The 2.7m data were obtained using the cross-dispersed echelle spectrometer (Tull et al., 1995PASP..107..251T) at the coude f/32.5 focus with a resolving power of either 30000 or 60000. The detector was a Tektronix CCD with 24µm2 pixels in a 2048x2048 format. For this setting, the spectral coverage was from 3800 to 8900Å with gaps between the orders beyond 5800Å. The HET data were taken with the Upgraded Fiber Optic Echelle spectrograph (Harlow et al., 1996AAS...189.4207H) at a resolving power of 11000 on a 1024x1024 CCD. The spectral coverage was from 4500 to 9000Å with gaps between the orders beyond 7300Å. File Summary:
