Hubble Space Telescope Near-Ultraviolet Spectroscopy Of The Bright CEMP-No Star BD+44 Degrees 493
We present an elemental-abundance analysis, in the near-ultraviolet (NUV) spectral range, for the extremely metal-poor star BD+44 degrees 493 a ninth magnitude subgiant with [Fe/H] = -3.8 and enhanced carbon, based on data ...
Detection of the Second r-Process Peak Element Tellurium in Metal-Poor Stars
Using near-ultraviolet spectra obtained with the Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph on board the Hubble Space Telescope, we detect neutral tellurium in three metal-poor stars enriched by products of r-process nucleosynthesis, ...
New Detections Of Arsenic, Selenium, And Other Heavy Elements In Two Metal-Poor Stars
We use the Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph on board the Hubble Space Telescope to obtain new high-quality spectra covering the 1900 <= lambda <= 2360 angstrom wavelength range for two metal-poor stars, HD 108317 and ...
Europium, Samarium, And Neodymium Isotopic Fractions In Metal-Poor Stars
We have derived isotopic fractions of europium, samarium, and neodymium in two metal-poor giants with differing neutron-capture nucleosynthetic histories. These isotopic fractions were measured from new high-resolution (R ...
New Hubble Space Telescope Observations of Heavy Elements in Four Metal-Poor Stars
Elements heavier than the iron group are found in nearly all halo stars. A substantial number of these elements, key to understanding neutron-capture nucleosynthesis mechanisms, can only be detected in the near-ultraviolet. ...
New Abundance Determinations of Cadmium, Lutetium, and Osmium in the R-Process Enriched Star BD+17 3248
We report the detection of Cd I (Z = 48), Lu II (Z = 71), and Os II (Z = 76) in the metal-poor star BD + 17 3248. These abundances are derived from an ultraviolet spectrum obtained with the Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph ...
