Abstract:AbstractWe monitor a sample of CEMP-no stars using the CFHT and SALT telescopes to gain additional knowledge about the possible binarity of these stars. This information is valuable for each individual star, and additionally it could be used to further constrain their binary fraction. We find two new CEMP-no binaries and four additional CEMP-no stars that show some indication of radial velocity variations, resulting in a CEMP-no binary fraction of ~20%.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
