We analyse multi-wavelength Hubble Space Telescope (HST) observations of a large number of star clusters in the nearby (post-) starburst dwarf galaxy NGC 1569. Their spectral energy distributions (SEDs) cover at least the wavelength range from U to I in equivalent HST filters, in most cases supplemented by near-infrared data. Using our most up-to-date evolutionary synthesis models of the Gottingen galev code we determine ages, metallicities, extinction values and masses for each individual clus… 
Ultraviolet, optical and near-infrared images of the nearby (D 5.5 Mpc) SBm galaxy NGC 1311, obtained with the Hubble Space Telescope, reveal a small population of 13 candidate star clusters. We
Star Formation in Clusters
HST is very well tailored for observations of extragalactic star clusters. One obvious reason is HST's high spatial resolution, but equally important is the wavelength range offered by the
Young Star Clusters: Progenitors of Globular Clusters!?
Star cluster formation is a major mode of star formation in the extreme conditions of interacting galaxies and violent starbursts. Young clusters are observed to form in a variety of such galaxies, a
Star cluster versus field star formation in the nucleus of the prototype starburst galaxy M 82
We analyse high-resolution Hubble Space Telescope/Advanced Camera for Surveys imaging of the nuclear starburst region of M82, obtained as part of the Hubble Heritage mosaic made of this galaxy, in
Formation and evolution of late-type dwarf galaxies — I. NGC 1705 and NGC 1569
We present one-zone chemical evolution models for two dwarf starburst galaxies, NGC 1705 and NGC 1569. Though especially designed for the inner ∼1 kpc region, where numerous H n regions and most of
On the fraction of star clusters surviving the embedded phase
In this paper we derive ages and masses for 276 clusters in the merger galaxy NGC 3256. This was achieved by taking accurate photometry in four wavebands from archival Hubble Space Telescope images.
Recent results from the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) have resolved starbursts as collections of compact young stellar clusters. Here we present a photometric catalog of the young stellar clusters in
Resolved photometry of extragalactic young massive star clusters
Aims. We present colour–magnitude diagrams (CMDs) of young massive star clusters in several galaxies located well beyond the Local Group. The richness of these clusters allows us to obtain large
Super star clusters in Haro 11: properties of a very young starburst and evidence for a near‐infrared flux excess
We have used multiband imaging to investigate the nature of an extreme starburst environment in the nearby Lyman break galaxy analogue Haro 11 (ESO350-IG038) by means of its stellar cluster


The Star Clusters in the Starburst Irregular Galaxy NGC 1569
We examine star clusters in the irregular starburst galaxy NGC 1569 from Hubble Space Telescope images taken with filters F336W, F555W, and F814W. In addition to the two super–star clusters that are
Dynamical Evidence for Massive, Young Globular Clusters in NGC 1569
Recent high-resolution observations with the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) reveal that star clusters of extraordinary luminosity and compactness are commonly found in a variety of starburst systems.
Star cluster formation and evolution in nearby starburst galaxies – II. Initial conditions
We use the ages, masses and metallicities of the rich young star cluster systems in the nearby starburst galaxies NGC 3310 and NGC 6745 to derive their cluster formation histories and subsequent

The large majority of extragalactic star cluster studies done to date have essentially used two or three-passband aperture photometry, combined with theoretical stellar population synthesis models,
