Abstract: AbstractThe age-metallicity relation (AMR) is a fundamental observational constraint for understanding how the Galactic disc formed and evolved chemically in time. However, there is not yet an agreement on the observational properties of the AMR, primarily due to the difficulty in obtaining accurate ages for individual field stars. We have started an observational campaign for providing new observational input by using wide white dwarf-main sequence (WDMS) binaries. WDs are natural clocks and can be used to de…
