We present ESO/VLT spectra in the 2.9–4.1 μm range for a large sample of infrared stars in the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC), mainly carbon stars, massive oxygen-rich Asymptotic Giant Branch (AGB) stars, and red supergiants. Strong emission from Polycyclic Aromatic Hyrdrocarbons (PAHs) is detected in the spectrum of the post-AGB object MSXSMC 29. Water ice is detected in at least one Young Stellar Object, IRAS01042−7215, for the first time in the SMC. The strength and shapes of the molecular… CONTINUE READING
