Improved Non-LTE Model Atmospheres for Subluminous O-Stars

  • U. Heber (a1), K. Hunger (a1), T. Rauch (a1) and K. Werner (a1)

Abstract

Improved non-LTE model atmospheres designed for the analysis of very hot subluminous O stars are presented. The calculations are based on the new method of the accelerated lambda iteration (ALI) which proves capable of treating up to 100 levels of various ions. Presented here are improved calculations for (i) pure hydrogen model atmospheres including Stark broadening, (ii) for hydrogen- and helium-composed model atmospheres and (iii) first preliminary models which include in addition a detailed carbon model atom. These models remove an apparent mismatch of Balmer line profiles noted previously and fit high S/N, high-resolution hydrogen and helium spectra obtained with the ESO-Cassegrain echelle spectrograph very well.
