Parameters of Hg-Mn Stars

During 2006/7, MSc project student Conor Maher-McWilliams investigated abundances of gold, platinum and mercury in mercury-manganese stars. In addition, fundamental parameters were constrained such as effective temperature and surface gravity using photometric and spectroscopic techniques.

The project was supervised by Dr Mike Dworetsky, who co-wrote the spectroscopic analysis program used, UCLSYN.
