We present an analysis of high-resolution spectroscopic observations of Polaris B, the optical companion of the Polaris Ab system. The star has a radial velocity of −16.6 to −18.9 km s −1 , and a projected rotational velocity v sin i = 110 km s −1 . The derived atmospheric parameters are: T eff = 6900 K; log g = 4.3; V t = 2.5 km s −1 . Polaris B has elemental abundances generally similar to those of the Cepheid Polaris A, although carbon, sodium and magnesium are close to the solar values. At… Expand
