Multiplicity of X-Ray Selected T Tauri Stars in Chamaeleon 1

We report on a multiplicity survey of a sample of X-ray selected young stars in the Chamaeleon association. We used speckle-interferometry and direct imaging to find companions in the separation range 0.13 to 6. After correction for chance alignment with background stars, we find a multiplicity (number of binaries or multiples divided by number of systems… CONTINUE READING
