We present results from a study of fifteen red giant members of the intermediate-metallicity globular cluster (GC) FSR 1758 using high-resolution near-infrared spectra collected with the Apache Point Observatory Galactic Evolution Experiment II survey (APOGEE-2), obtained as part of CAPOS (the bulge Cluster APOgee Survey). Since its very recent discovery as a massive GC in the bulge region, evoking the name Sequoia, this has been an intriguing object with a highly debated origin, and initially… Expand

Homogeneous analysis of globular clusters from the APOGEE survey with the BACCHUS code – II. The Southern clusters and overview
We investigate the Fe, C, N, O, Mg, Al, Si, K, Ca, Ce, and Nd abundances of 2283 red giant stars in 31 globular clusters from high-resolution spectra observed in both the Northern and SouthernExpand
Chemical analysis of NGC 6528: one of the most metal-rich bulge globular clusters
Context. The bulge globular clusters (GCs) are key tracers of the bulge, a central and ancient component of our Galaxy. It is essential to understand their formation and evolution to study that ofExpand
Confirmation and physical characterization of the new bulge globular cluster Patchick 99 from the VVV and Gaia surveys
Context. Globular clusters (GCs) are recognised as important tools for understanding the formation and evolution of the Milky Way (MW) because they are the oldest objects in our Galaxy.Expand
Three candidate globular clusters discovered in the Galactic bulge
This work reports the discovery of three new globular clusters (GCs) towards the Galactic bulge - Camargo 1107, 1108, and 1109. The discovery was made using the WISE, 2MASS, VVV, and Gaia-DR2Expand
The origin of globular cluster FSR 1758
Globular clusters in the Milky Way are thought to have either an {\it in situ} origin, or to have been deposited in the Galaxy by past accretion events, like the spectacular Sagittarius dwarf galaxyExpand

H-band discovery of additional second-generation stars in the Galactic bulge globular cluster NGC 6522 as observed by APOGEE and Gaia
We present an elemental abundance analysis of high-resolution spectra for five giant stars spatially located within the innermost regions of the bulge globular cluster NGC 6522 and derive Fe, Mg, Al,Expand
Homogeneous analysis of globular clusters from the APOGEE survey with the BACCHUS code
Aims. We seek to provide abundances of a large set of light and neutron-capture elements homogeneously analyzed that cover a wide range of metallicity to constrain globular cluster (GC) formation andExpand
Discovery of new globular clusters in the Sagittarius dwarf galaxy
Context. Globular clusters (GCs) are witnesses of the past accretion events onto the Milky Way (MW). In particular, the GCs of the Sagittarius (Sgr) dwarf galaxy are important probes of an on-goingExpand
Globular cluster candidates in the Galactic bulge: Gaia and VVV view of the latest discoveries
Context. Thanks to the recent wide-area photometric surveys, the number of star cluster candidates have risen exponentially in the last few years. Most detections, however, are based only on theExpand
