We investigate the massive star content of NGC 3603, the closest known giant H II region. We have obtained spectra of 26 stars in the central cluster using the Baade 6.5 m telescope (Magellan I). Of these 26 stars, 16 had no previous spectroscopy. We also obtained photometry of all of the stars with previous or new spectroscopy, primarily using archival HST Advanced Camera for Surveys/High-Resolution Camera images. The total number of stars that have been spectroscopically classified in NGC… 
The O star hinterland of the Galactic starburst, NGC 3603
The very bright and compact massive young cluster, NGC 3603, has been cited as an example of a starburst in the Milky Way and compared with the much-studied R136/30 Doradus region in the Large
Star formation in the starburst cluster in NGC 3603
We have used new, deep, visible and near infrared observations of the compact starburst cluster in the giant HII region NGC 3603 and its surroundings with the WFC3 on HST and HAWK-I on the VLT to
Internal Dynamics and Membership of the NGC?3603?Young?Cluster from Microarcsecond Astrometry
We have analyzed two epochs of HST/WFPC2 observations of the young Galactic starburst cluster in NGC 3603 with the aim to study its internal dynamics and stellar population. Relative proper motions
ON THE ORIGIN OF MASS SEGREGATION IN NGC 3603
We present deep Hubble Space Telescope/Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 photometry of the young HD 97950 star cluster in the giant H II region NGC 3603. The data were obtained in 1997 and 2007
SOAR OPTICAL AND NEAR-INFRARED SPECTROSCOPIC SURVEY OF NEWLY DISCOVERED MASSIVE STARS IN THE PERIPHERY OF GALACTIC MASSIVE STAR CLUSTERS I-NGC 3603
In this work, we present a spectroscopic study of very massive stars found outside the center of the massive stellar cluster NGC3603. From the analysis of SOAR spectroscopic data and related
PROGRESSIVE STAR FORMATION IN THE YOUNG GALACTIC SUPER STAR CLUSTER NGC 3603
Early Release Science observations of the cluster NGC 3603 with the WFC3 on the refurbished Hubble Space Telescope allow us to study its recent star formation history. Our analysis focuses on stars
The origin of very massive stars around NGC 3603
The formation mechanism of the most massive stars in the Universe remains an unsolved problem. Are they able to form in relative isolation in a manner similar to the formation of solar-type stars, or
Detection of Brown Dwarf Like Objects in the Core of NGC?3603
We used near-infrared data obtained with the Wide Field Camera 3 on the Hubble Space Telescope to identify objects having the colors of brown dwarfs (BDs) in the field of the massive galactic cluster
GEMINI near-infrared spectroscopic observations of young massive stars embedded in molecular clouds
K-band spectra of young stellar candidates in four southern hemisphere clusters have been obtained with the near-infrared spectrograph GNIRS in Gemini South. The clusters are associated with IRAS
HERSCHEL FAR-IR OBSERVATIONS OF THE GIANT H II REGION NGC 3603
We observed the giant H II region around the NGC 3603 YC with the five broad bands (70, 160, 250, 350, 500 μm) of the SPIRE and PACS instruments, on board the Herschel Space Observatory. Together
