A Far - Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Survey of the Globular Cluster 47 Tuc

Abstract

We present preliminary results from a FUV spectroscopic and photometric survey of the globular cluster 47 Tuc. Our main goal is to either confirm or rule out the existence of a large population of CVs in the core of this cluster. We have so far identified approximately 425 FUV sources, most of which are probably hot, young WDs. However, we have also found… (More)
