Ultraviolet carbon lines in the spectrum of the white dwarf BPM 11668
Author and Affiliation:
Wegner, G.(Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH, United States)
Abstract: The southern hemisphere DC white dwarf BPM 11668 has been found to show strong ultraviolet lines of neutral carbon using observations from the IUE satellite. This star seems typical of the growing number of DC white dwarfs found to be of this type and appears to have a carbon abundance near C:He = 0.0001, with an effective temperature of 8500 K.
