Descripción
SDSS J082625.70+612515.10 (V = 11.4 [Fe/H] = ‑3.1) and SDSS J134144.60+474128.90 (V = 12.4 [Fe/H] = ‑3.2) were observed with the SDSS 2.5m telescope as part of the SDSS MARVELS spectroscopic pre-survey and identified as extremely metal-poor (EMP; [Fe/H] <‑3.0) stars during the high-resolution follow-up using the Hanle Echelle Spectrograph (HESP) on the 2.0-m Himalayan Chandra Telescope. In this paper, the first science results using HESP, we present a detailed analysis of their chemical abundances. Both stars exhibit under-abundances in their neutron capture elements, while one of them (SDSS J134144.60+474128.90) is clearly enhanced in carbon. Lithium was also detected in this star at a level of about A(Li) = 1.95. The spectra were obtained over a span of 6–24 months, and indicate that both stars could be members of binary systems. We compare the elemental abundances derived for these two stars along with other carbon-enhanced metal-poor (CEMP) and EMP stars, in order to understand the nature of their parent supernovae. We find that CEMP-no stars and EMP-dwarfs show a very similar trend in their lithium abundances at various metallicities. We also find indications of CEMP-no stars having larger abundances of Cr and Co at given metallicities compared to EMP stars.

Nucleosíntesis y procesos moleculares en los últimos estados de la evolución estelar

Las estrellas de masa baja e intermedia (M < 8 masas solares, Ms) representan la mayoría de estrellas en el Cosmos y terminan sus vidas en la Rama Asintótica de las Gigantes (AGB) - justo antes de formar Nebulosas Planetarias (NPs) - cuando experimentan procesos nucleosintéticos y moleculares complejos. Las estrellas AGB son importantes

Abundancias Químicas en Estrellas

La espectroscopía de estrellas nos permite determinar las propiedades y composiciones químicas de las mismas. A partir de esta información para estrellas de diferente edad en la Vía Láctea es posible reconstruir la evolución química de la Galaxia, así como el origen de los elementos más pesados que el boro, forjados principalmente en los interiores
