The photometric performance and calibration of the Hubble Space Telescope advanced camera for surveys
ABSTRACT We present the photometric calibration of the Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS). The ACS was installed in the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) in 2002 March. It comprises three cameras: the Wide
The GALEX Ultraviolet Atlas of Nearby Galaxies
We present images, integrated photometry, and surface-brightness and color profiles for a total of 1034 nearby galaxies recently observed by the Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX) satellite in its
The UV-Optical Galaxy Color-Magnitude Diagram. I. Basic Properties
We have analyzed the bivariate distribution of galaxies as a function of ultraviolet-optical colors and absolute magnitudes in the local universe. The sample consists of galaxies with redshifts and
Improved Color-Temperature Relations and Bolometric Corrections for Cool Stars
We present new grids of colors and bolometric corrections for F-K stars having 4000 K ≤ Teff ≤ 6500 K, 0.0 ≤ log g ≤ 4.5, and -3.0 ≤ [Fe/H] ≤ 0.0. A companion paper extends these calculations into
Origin of the Soft Excess in X-Ray Pulsars
The spectra of many X-ray pulsars show, in addition to a power law, a low-energy component that has often been modeled as a blackbody with kTBB ~ 0.1 keV. However, the physical origin of this soft
An X‐ray Baldwin effect for the narrow Fe Kα lines observed in active galactic nuclei
The majority of active galactic nuclei (AGN) observed by XMM-Newton reveal narrow Fe Ka lines at ∼6.4 keV, due to emission from cold (neutral) material. There is an X-ray Baldwin effect in type I
Synthetic Spectra and Color-Temperature Relations of M Giants
As part of a project to model the integrated spectra and colors of elliptical galaxies through evolutionary synthesis, we have refined our synthetic spectrum calculations of M giants. After
Chemical and Photometric Evolution of Extended Ultraviolet Disks: Optical Spectroscopy of M83 (NGC 5236) and NGC 4625*
We present the results from the analysis of optical spectra of 31 Hα-selected regions in the extended UV (XUV) disks of M83 (NGC 5236) and NGC 4625 recently discovered by GALEX. The spectra were
Spatial Variability in the Ratio of Interstellar Atomic Deuterium to Hydrogen. I. Observations toward delta Orionis by the Interstellar Medium Absorption Profile Spectrograph
Studies of the abundances of deuterium in different astrophysical sites are of fundamental importance to answering the question about how much deuterium was produced during big bang nucleosynthesis
Very Extended X-Ray and Hα Emission in M82: Implications for the Superwind Phenomenon
We discuss the properties and implications of the recently discovered 35 × 09 (3.7 × 0.9 kpc) region of spatially coincident X-ray and Hα emission about 11' (11.6 kpc) to the north of the
