Line-Profiles of F Supergiant Stars as Candidates of Proto-Planetary Nebulae

  • S. Tamura (a1), M. Takeuti (a1) and J. Zalewski (a1)

Extract

In this report the results of spectroscopic observations on selected F supergiant stars as the candidates of proto-planetary nebulae (PPNs) are presented. Volk and Kwok(1989) selected nearly one hundred new candidates of PPNs based upon the scenario on the evolution of them. They summarized four classes of stars which should be the PPNs and are described in various papers. These are (i) High galactic latitude supergiants, (ii) Nonvariable OH/IR stars, (iii) Low color temperature infrared objects, and (iv) R. CrB. In order to examine the extended envelope of the PPNs we have started our project to obtain the Hα profile which should give us some clue to the structure of the envelope. We are mainly concerned with F supergiant stars. Our sample objects are mostly classified as pulsating or semiregular variables.
