The Galactic Distribution of OH/IR Stars

  • H.J. Habing (a1)

Extract

In 1967 Wilson and Barrett (1968, 1970) discovered that some long period variables, very red and apparently very late type stars, emit OH microwave line emission that is especially strong in the 1612 MHz line at 18 cm. At present some 65 such OH-emitting stars have been identified - for a recent compilation see Bowers and Kerr (1977, M giants) and Baudry et al. (1977, M supergiants). Several stars show maser emission in H2O and SiO as well. At this colloquium Winnberg will review the present status of our knowledge of these stars.
