The search for M-M Dwarf Eclipsing Binary Systems
(Vanderbilt University. Dept. of Physics and Astronomy, 2016-05-18)
Using data from the Kilodegree Extremely Little Telescope (KELT) project, we performed a survey of 2028 known M Dwarf stars in the KELT footprint for M-M Dwarf eclipsing binaries (EBs). After searching 2028 Mdwarf ...
A Search for Pre-Main Sequence Eclipsing Binary Stars in the Lagoon Nebula
(Vanderbilt University. Dept. of Physics and Astronomy, 2009-04-20)
We report time-series CCD I-band photometry for the pre-main-sequence cluster NGC 6530, located within the Lagoon Nebula. The data were obtained with the 4Kx4K imager on the SMARTS 1.0m telescope at CTIO on 36 nights over ...
Measuring Radial Velocities of Low Mass Eclipsing Binaries
(Vanderbilt University. Dept. of Physics and Astronomy, 2011-04)
Due to the complex nature of the spectra of low-mass M type stars, it is difficult to determine their metallicities and temperatures directly. By studying eclipsing binary pairs comprising one F, G, or K type star with ...
