Abstract We present a study of the infrared properties of 4922 spectroscopically confirmed massive stars in the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds, focusing on the active OB star population. Besides OB stars, our sample includes yellow and red supergiants, Wolf-Rayet stars, Luminous Blue Variables (LBVs) and supergiant B[e] stars. We detect a distinct Be star sequence, displaced to the red, and find a higher fraction of Oe and Be stars among O and early-B stars in the SMC, respectively, when… Expand

VARIABILITY OF LUMINOUS STARS IN THE LARGE MAGELLANIC CLOUD USING 10 YEARS OF ASAS DATA
Motivated by the detection of a recent outburst of the massive luminous blue variable LMC-R71, which reached an absolute magnitude MV = ?9.3 mag, we undertook a systematic study of the opticalExpand
Be stars and binaries in the field of the SMC open cluster NGC 330 with VLT-FLAMES
Aims. Observations of hot stars belonging to the young cluster SMC-NGC 330 and its surrounding region were obtained with the VLT-GIRAFFE facilities in MEDUSA mode. We investigated the B and Be starExpand
TERMINAL VELOCITIES OF LUMINOUS, EARLY-TYPE STARS IN THE SMALL MAGELLANIC CLOUD
Ultraviolet spectra from the Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph (STIS) are used to determine terminal velocities for 11 O and B-type giants and supergiants in the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) fromExpand
A slitless spectroscopic survey for Hα emission-line objects in SMC clusters
Context. A fair fraction of all single early-type stars display emission lines well before their supergiant phase. Very rapid rotation is necessary for these stars to form rotationally supportedExpand
AKARI's infrared view on nearby stars : Using AKARI Infrared Camera All-Sky Survey, 2MASS, and Hipparcos catalog
Results: We found that the (B-V) v.s. (V-S9W) color-color diagram is useful to identify the stars with infrared excess emerged from circumstellar envelopes/disks. Be stars with infrared excess areExpand
The empirical metallicity dependence of the mass-loss rate of O- and early B-type stars
We present a comprehensive study of the observational dependence of the mass-loss rate in stationary stellar winds of hot massive stars on the metal content of their atmospheres. The metal content ofExpand

Classical Be Stars
Recent results for classical Be stars are reviewed and links to general astrophysics are presented. Classical Be stars are B-type stars close to the main sequence that exhibit line emission over theExpand
