The planetary nebula population of M 33 and its metallicity gradient : A look into the galaxy ’ s distant past 1

Abstract

The Planetary Nebula (PN) population of M33 is studied via multi-fiber spectroscopy with Hectospec at the MMT. In this paper we present the spectra of 102 PNe, whereas plasma diagnostic and chemical abundances were performed on the 93 PNe where the necessary diagnostic lines were measured. About 20% of the PNe are compatible with being Type I; the rest of… (More)
