Aims. The incidence of multiplicity in cool, luminous massive stars is relatively unknown compared to their hotter counterparts. In this work we present radial velocity (RV) measurements and investigate the multiplicity properties of red supergiants (RSGs) in the 30 Doradus region of the Large Magellanic Cloud using multi-epoch visible spectroscopy from the VLT-FLAMES Tarantula Survey. Methods. Exploiting the high density of absorption features in visible spectra of cool stars, we used a novel… 
The VLT-FLAMES Tarantula Survey
Aims. We estimate physical parameters for the late-type massive stars observed as part of the VLT-FLAMES Tarantula Survey (VFTS) in the 30 Doradus region of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). Methods.
Multiplicity of the red supergiant population in the young massive cluster NGC 330
Context. The multiplicity properties of massive stars are one of the important outstanding issues in stellar evolution. Quantifying the binary statistics of all evolutionary phases is essential to
High-resolution spectroscopic study of massive blue and red supergiants in Perseus OB1
Context.The Perseus OB1 association, including thehandχPersei double cluster, is an interesting laboratory for the investigation of massive star evolution as it hosts one of the most populous
Variability of Massive Stars in M31 from the Palomar Transient Factory
Using data from the (intermediate) Palomar Transient Factory (iPTF), we characterize the time variability of ~500 massive stars in M31. Our sample is those stars which are spectrally typed by Massey
Evolved massive stars at low-metallicity
We present a clean, magnitude-limited (IRAC1 or WISE1 ≤ 15.0 mag) multiwavelength source catalog for the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) with 45 466 targets in total, with the purpose of building an
The young massive SMC cluster NGC 330 seen by MUSE
Observations of massive stars in young open clusters (< ~8 Myr) have shown that a majority of them are in binary systems, most of which will interact during their life. Populations of massive stars
Multiplicity among the cool supergiants in the Magellanic Clouds
The characterization of multiplicity of high-mass stars is of fundamental importance to understand their evolution, the diversity of observed core-collapse supernovae and the formation of
A spectroscopic multiplicity survey of Galactic Wolf-Rayet stars
It is now well established that the majority of massive stars reside in multiple systems. However, the effect of multiplicity is not sufficiently understood, resulting in a plethora of uncertainties
Formation pathway for lonely stripped-envelope supernova progenitors: implications for Cassiopeia A
We explore a new scenario for producing stripped-envelope supernova progenitors. In our scenario, the stripped-envelope supernova is the second supernova of the binary, in which the envelope of the
