The results of a spectroscopic survey of Hα emission line stars associated with fourteen bright rimmed clouds are presented. Slit-less optical spectroscopy was carried out with the Inter University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics (IUCAA) 2 m telescope and IUCAA Faint Object Spectrograph and Camera (IFOSC). Hα emission line was detected from 173 objects. Among them 85 objects have a strong Hα emission line with its equivalent width larger than 10 A. Those are classical T Tauri stars. 52… Expand

WEDA: A Weak Emission-Line Detection Algorithm Based on the Weighted Ranking
By using several spectral datasets from the DR5 of LAMOST survey, experiments results indicate that the WEDA shows higher accuracy basically unaffected by the dataset size and the signal to noise ratio(SNR) than the other similar algorithms. Expand


A New Hα Emission-line Survey in the Orion Nebula Cluster
We present results from an Hα emission line survey in a 1 deg{sup 2} area centered on the Orion Nebula Cluster, obtained with the Wide Field Grism Spectrograph 2 on the 2.2 m telescope of theExpand
Hα Emission Stars and Herbig-Haro Objects in the Vicinity of Bright-rimmed Clouds
Bright-rimmed clouds (BRCs) found in H II regions are probably sites of triggered star formation due to compression by ionization/shock fronts. Many BRCs harbor IRAS point sources of low dustExpand
Wide-field Survey of Emission-line Stars in IC 1396
We have made an extensive survey of emission-line stars in the IC 1396 H II region to investigate the low-mass population of pre-main-sequence (PMS) stars. A total of 639 H? emission-line stars wereExpand
Champagne flow and triggered star formation in NGC 1893
Using Hα grism spectroscopy and optical and Two-Micron All-Sky Survey photometry of the fields containing NGC 1893 and two emission nebulae, Sim 129 and Sim 130, we show the presence of a number ofExpand
Young Star Clusters in Bright-rimmed Clouds: Small-Scale Sequential Star Formation?
A JHK imaging survey has been made for 44 bright-rimmed clouds associated with IRAS point sources detected by Sugitani et al. We have found small clusters of near-infrared sources having youngExpand
The initial mass function and disk frequency of the ρ ophiuchi cloud: An extinction-limited sample
We have completed an optical spectroscopic survey of an unbiased, extinction-limited sample of candidate young stars covering 1.3 deg2 of the ρ Ophiuchi star-forming region. While infrared, X-ray,Expand
Triggered star formation and evolution of T-Tauri stars in and around bright-rimmed clouds
The aim of this paper is to quantitatively testify the ‘small-scale sequential star formation’ hypothesis in and around bright-rimmed clouds (BRCs). As a continuation of the recent attempt by OguraExpand
Near-Infrared Survey of Bright Rimmed Clouds
We conductedwide-field near-infraredimaging observationsof 32 bright rimmed clouds (BRCs). Given a detec- tion limit of 17.7mag at the K-band, we identified 2099 objects as young stellar object (YSO)Expand
Sequential Formation of Low-Mass Stars in the BRC 14 Region ∗
We carried out a deep near-infrared survey of a bright-rimmed molecular cloud, BRC 14 (IC 1848A). The 10 σ limiting magnitude of the survey is 17.7mag at the K-band. Seventy-four sources areExpand
A Catalog of Bright-rimmed Clouds with IRAS Point Sources: Candidates for Star Formation by Radiation-driven Implosion. I. The Northern Hemisphere
Forty-four bright-rimmed clouds associated with IRAS sources have been selected from the Palomar Sky Survey prints. They are good candidates for the sites of star formation induced byExpand
