1995, Astronomy and Astrophysics, The estimated BVR magnitudes at the time of the spectral observations are determined from regularized multiterm fits (VanderPlas & Ivezić, 2015, i.e. 2015, ApJ, 801, 125, Kirkpatrick, J. D., Henry, T. J., & McCarthy, Jr., D. W. 1991, ApJS, During the T Tauri phase of pre-stellar evolution, the protostar will actually fluctuate in brightness; however, on average, T Tauri stars are cooler and fainter than their final location in the HR diagram (0.7 Solar luminosities, 4,500 K). Uncertainty in colors may be solved with self-consistent comparisons to young stars with similar spectral types if spot coverage is also similar. The CrAO data includes 43 BVR visits from August 2015 - March 2016. Figures 6–7 compare synthetic spectra from the two-component photosphere to the SED and flux-calibrated spectra of LkCa 4. Proc. When the hotter component has a larger filling fraction, the TiO bands are veiled by the hotter component and should, therefore, be shallower. Modeling of polychromatic photometric monitoring of the locus of WTTSs indicates a lower limit to the true coverage fraction feq∼10−30% and a difference Thot−Tcool∼500 K. Large amplitudes of the light variation indicate the existence of very extended spotted regions on the stellar surface. Figure 1 displays all the V−band photometry over the interval 1985-2016. Figures 2 and 9), the filling factor of cool spots could have exceeded 90%. 5492, Ground-based Instrumentation for Astronomy, ed. Although the revised effective temperature and luminosity make LkCa 4 appear much younger and lower mass than previous estimates from unspotted stellar evolution models, appropriate estimates will require the production and adoption of spotted evolutionary models. As a result, the surface is cooler and releases less radiation, slowing the contraction rate. We thank the anonymous referee, Chris Kochanek, and Daniel T. Jaffe for valuable comments on the draft. Remarkably, the filling factor of cool photosphere exceeds 50%, with a best fit value of fcool=80±5%. Best fit values for the stellar parameters are listed in Table 2. The effective temperature Teff of these two components may be calculated as. Direct spectral emission from cool starspots is likely much weaker in sources with less starspot coverage than LkCa 4. M. Booth, B. C. Matthews, & J. R. Within clusters, any real differences in ages between stars may be masked by observational uncertainties in temperature and luminosity measurements (e.g. Ages and masses of young stars are often estimated by comparing their luminosities and effective temperatures to pre-main-sequence stellar evolution tracks, but magnetic fields and starspots complicate both the observations and evolution.

Students can come away thinking that an HR diagram is like a map, and what the track plots is the star's motion through space, not its changing temperature and luminosity as it evolves. 77351C, Wolk, S. J., & Walter, F. M. 1996, AJ, 111, 2066, Xiao, H. Y., Covey, K. R., Rebull, L., et al.

No effort was made to mitigate these flux excess residuals, which affect several spectral orders. Stassun et al., 2014; Rizzuto et al., 2016). These orders were ultimately excluded from further analyses. 3220, Downes, R. A., & Keyes, C. D. 1988, AJ, 96, 777, Edwards, S., Fischer, W., Hillenbrand, L., & Kwan, J. This ''birthline'' is in striking agreement with observations of T Tauri stars, providing a strong confirmation of the fact that these stars are indeed contracting along Hayashi tracks. First, The choice to standardize fluxes makes no difference for modeling a single photospheric component. This spectral modeling leads to an improved effective temperature measurement of LkCa 4. This latter feature is caused by opacity in H2O bands and is only seen when the fraction of emission from the cool component is high (Figure 8). We model this rotational modulation using the main sequence colors (compiled by Pecaut & Mamajek, 2013), which should have less contribution from spots than pre-main sequence colors.

Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE) Conference Series, The cool spectral models predict shallow features because line blanketing from multiple indistinct molecular bands overlaps from rotational broadening; any feature of interest will be biased to non-zero veiling. Scaling this composite spectrum of LkCa 4 to the observed 2MASS photometry (∼74% spot covering fraction) yields R=2.3 R⊙ and logL/L⊙=−0.20, adopting AV=0.3 mag and a distance of 131±2 pc888This distance is consistent with the Gaia distance of 130±4 pc measured to the nearby Taurus members V410 Tau, V773 Tau, and BP Tau (Gaia Collaboration et al., 2016). Radial velocity (RV) planet searches in the infrared–where the modulation of RV signals is lessened (e.g. In this section, we describe that the need for a large cool spot is robust, despite some simplifying limitations of our spectral inference technique. The long wavelength portion of H−band and all of K−band are more sensitive to starspot spectral signatures than the shorter wavelength portions. The SED also includes mid-IR photometry from Spitzer/IRAC (Hartmann et al., 2005), without adjusting for epoch. 2012, ApJ, 761, 164, Cushing, M. C., Vacca, W. D., & Rayner, J. T. 2004, PASP, 116, 362, Czekala, I., Andrews, S. M., Mandel, K. S., Hogg, D. W., & Green, Astronomical Journal, 143, 4, Hartigan, P., Edwards, S., & Ghandour, L. 1995, ApJ, 452, 736, Hartmann, L., Megeath, S. T., Allen, L., et al.

Figures 14 and 15 in the Appendix show 42 of the H− and K−band spectra on a log scale with a single random composite model spectrum overplotted.

However, the outer layers of this protostar are cooler than the Sun, so the point we plot on the HR diagram for this protostar is above and to the right of the Sun's current location in the diagram (temperature about 3,500 K). The large amplitude photometric variations in LkCa 4 are therefore evidence for either a hot spot in excess of the ambient photosphere or a large coverage fraction of cool starspots. The spread in apparent luminosities of T Tauri stars caused by occultation and emission from protostellar disks is investigated. A single ESPaDOnS order surrounding the TiO bands shows an exceptionally low estimated Teff. Engineering, 13, 22, Waskom, M., Botvinnik, O., Hobson, P., et al. These spot maps demonstrate that multiple temperature components contribute to the broadband emission from the star, which may explain the large differences between the 4100 K effective temperature measurement obtained from high-resolution optical spectra (Donati et al., 2014) compared with 3600 K obtained from an analysis dominated by TiO bands (Herczeg & Hillenbrand, 2014). These discrepancies may also explain the large temperature, systematic offsets identified when comparing temperatures from H-band APOGEE spectra to those obtained from other (usually optical) methods (Cottaar et al., 2014).
