We present an analysis of the intrinsic colors and temperatures of 5–30 Myr old pre-main-sequence (pre-MS) stars using the F0- through M9-type members of nearby, negligibly reddened groups: the η Cha cluster, the TW Hydra Association, the β Pic Moving Group, and the Tucana-Horologium Association. To check the consistency of spectral types from the literature, we estimate new spectral types for 52 nearby pre-MS stars with spectral types F3 through M4 using optical spectra taken with the SMARTS 1…

Abstract We highlight differences in spectral types and intrinsic colors observed in pre-main sequence (pre-MS) stars. Spectral types of pre-MS stars are wavelength-dependent, with near-infrared

Nearby Young, Active, Late-type Dwarfs in Gaia's First Data Release

The Galex Nearby Young Star Survey (GALNYSS) has yielded a sample of ∼2000 UV-selected objects that are candidate nearby ( D ≲ 150 pc ), young (age ∼ 10–100 Myr), late-type stars. Here, we evaluate

Photometric Strömgren-Hβ Quantification for O and B Stars of Luminosity Class V

In any photometric system, the relationship between the spectral type and the intrinsic colors is fundamental for the photometric stellar classification and for a reliable derivation of stellar

Estimates of the mass and age of young stars from their location in the H-R diagram are limited by not only the typical observational uncertainties that apply to field stars, but also by large

Projected Rotational Velocities and Fundamental Properties of Low-mass Pre-main-sequence Stars in the Taurus–Auriga Star-forming Region

The projected stellar rotational velocity ( ) is critical for our understanding of processes related to the evolution of angular momentum in pre-main-sequence stars. We present measurements of

Placing the Spotted T Tauri Star LkCa 4 on an HR Diagram

Ages and masses of young stars are often estimated by comparing their luminosities and effective temperatures to pre-main-sequence stellar evolution tracks, but magnetic fields and starspots

We present a novel infrared spectral energy distribution (SED) modeling methodology that uses likelihood-based weighting of the model fitting results to construct probabilistic Hertzsprung–Russell

Age Spreads and Systematics in λ Orionis with Gaia DR2 and the SPOTS Tracks

In this paper we investigate the robustness of age measurements, age spreads, and stellar models in young pre-main-sequence stars. For this effort, we study a young cluster, λ Orionis, within the

Identification and Spectroscopic Characterization of 128 New Herbig Stars

We present optical spectroscopy observations of 145 high-mass pre-main-sequence candidates from the catalog of Vioque et al. 2020 From these, we provide evidence for the Herbig nature of 128 sources.

Empirical Isochrones for Low Mass Stars in Nearby Young Associations

Absolute ages of young stars are important for many issues in pre-main-sequence stellar and circumstellar evolution but long have been recognized as difficult to derive and calibrate. In this paper,
