Aims. The determination of effective temperature for chemically peculiar (CP) stars by means of photometry is a sophisticated task due to their abnormal colours. Standard calibrations for normal stars lead to erroneous results and, in most cases corrections are necessary. Methods. In order to specify appropriate corrections, direct temperature determinations for 176 objects of the different subgroups were collected from the literature. This much larger sample than in previous studies therefore… 

Spectrophotometric analysis of the 5200 Å region for peculiar and normal stars

Context. Many chemically peculiar (CP) stars, especially the magnetic CP2 stars, show a flux depression at 5200 A. The Δa photometric system takes advantage of this characteristic to detect these

New spectroscopic classifications of 35 chemically peculiar candidate stars

The chemically peculiar (CP) stars of the upper main sequence are perfect tracers for several astrophysical processes. Their study especially in open clusters further helps to establish their

Chemically peculiar stars as seen with 2MASS

The chemically peculiar (CP) stars of the upper main sequence are well suited for investigating the impact of magnetic fields and diffusion on the surface layers of slowly rotating stars. They can

A plethora of new, magnetic chemically peculiar stars from LAMOST DR4

Context. Magnetic chemically peculiar (mCP) stars are important to astrophysics because their complex atmospheres lend themselves perfectly to the investigation of the interplay between such diverse

λ Bootis stars in the SuperWASP survey

We have analysed around 170 000 individual photometric WASP (Wide Angle Search for Planets) measurements of 15 well-established λ Bootis stars to search for variability. The λ Bootis stars are a

A photometric study of chemically peculiar stars with the STEREO satellites - I. Magnetic chemically peculiar stars

About 10 per cent of upper main-sequence stars are characterized by the presence of chemical peculiarities, often found together with a structured magnetic field. The atmospheres of most of those

Towards a photometric metallicity scale for open clusters

Open clusters are a useful tool when investigating several topics connected with stellar evolution; for example the age or distance can be more accurately determined than for field stars. However,

Magnetic, chemically peculiar (CP2) stars in the SuperWASP survey

The magnetic chemically peculiar (CP2) stars of the upper main sequence are well-suited for investigating the impact of magnetic fields on the surface layers of stars, which leads to abundance

An investigation of the rotational properties of magnetic chemically peculiar stars

The magnetic chemically peculiar (mCP) stars of the upper main sequence exhibit strong, globally organized magnetic fields that are inclined to the rotational axis and facilitate the development of

The CoRoT chemical peculiar target star HD 49310

Context. The magnetic chemically peculiar (CP) stars of the upper main sequence are well-suited laboratories for investigating the influence of local magnetic fields on the stellar surface because



A calibration of Geneva photometry for B to G stars in terms of Teff, log g and $[M/H]$

We have used recent Kurucz models and numerous standard stars to improve the calibration of the Geneva photometric system proposed a few years ago. A new photometric diagram for the classification of

Chemically peculiar stars in the Large Magellanic Cloud

Context. The detection of magnetic chemically peculiar (CP2) stars in open clusters of extragalactic systems can give observational answers to many unsolved questions. For example, one can study the

Calibration in Temperature of Photometric Parameters

It is very easy to use a Planck distribution to show that a color index is a temperature parameter, but it is more difficult to calibrate such a color index in terms of temperature because only a few

Effective temperatures of magnetic CP stars from full spectral energy distributions

New determinations of effective temperatures of 23 magnetic, chemically peculiar (mCP) stars were obtained from a fit of metal enhanced model atmospheres to the observed spectral energy distributions
