    We have used blue near-infrared colours to select a group of 12 spectroscopically confirmed United Kingdom InfraRed Telescope (UKIRT) Infrared Deep Sky Survey (UKIDSS) T dwarfs later than T4. From amongst these, we identify ...

    The treatment of mixing is still one of the major uncertainties in stellar evolution models. One open question is how well the prescriptions for rotational mixing describe the real effects. We tested the mixing prescriptions ...

    The Goddard High Resolution Spectrograph (GHRS) of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) has been used to observe the boron 2500 °A region of BD −13 3442. At a metallicity of [Fe/H]=−3.00 this is the most metal- poor star ever ...
  • Barnes, J R; James, D J; Cameron, A C (2002)
    With the advent of 8-m class telescopes and model atmospheres incorporating molecular opacities a great deal of interest has been directed towards the previously unexplored cool, low mass stars. M dwarfs are obviously a ...
  • Rauscher, T. (2006-01)
    The location of the (gamma,p)/(gamma,n) and (gamma,alpha)/(gamma,n) line at gamma process temperatures is discussed, using updated reaction rates based on global Hauser-Feshbach calculations. The results can be directly ...

    New results are presented, as part of the Hi-z Emission Line Survey (HizELS), from the largest area survey to date (1.4 deg ) for Lyα emitters (LAEs) at z ~ 9. The survey, which is primarily targeting Hα emitters at z <3, ...

    Brown dwarf companions to white dwarfs are rare, but recent infra-red surveys are slowly revealing examples. We present new observations of the post-common envelope binary WD0137-349, which reveals the effects of irradiation ...
  • Riaz, Basmah; Lodieu, Nicolas; Gizis, John E. (2009-11-10)
    We present Spitzer/IRAC and MIPS 24 mu m observations for 28 brown dwarfs in the Upper Scorpius (UppSco) region. We find a disk fraction of 10.7%-(+ 8.7%)(3.3%) . One object shows a small excess at 24 mu m but none at ...
  • Heber, U.; Edelmann, H.; Napiwotzki, R.; Altmann, M.; Scholz, R.D. (2008-05-01)
    Context. Young, massive stars have been found in the distant Galactic halo. Dynamical ejection from the Galactic disc has been suggested as the origin of these "run-away stars". The so-called hyper-velocity stars have been ...

    The Swift/Burst Alert Telescope detected the first burst from 1E 1841-045 in 2010 May with intermittent burst activity recorded through at least 2011 July. Here we present Swift and Fermi/Gamma-ray Burst Monitor observations ...
  • Lucas, Philip; Roche, P F (1997-04-21)
    We present high-resolution, near-infrared images of a sample of five low-mass young stellar objects in the Taurus-Auriga dark cloud, mostly observed with the 'shift and add' technique, together with deep polarimetric images. ...

    We have calculated the cross sections for the charge symmetric reactions He-3(He-3,2p)He-4 and He-3(He-3,2p)He-4 at sub-Coulomb energies in the potential model. Good agreement with the experimental data is obtained. The ...

    Fission plays an important role in the r-process which is responsible; not only for the yields of transuranium isotopes, but may have a strong influence on the formation of the majority of heavy nuclei due to fission ...
