Classifying the SEDs of Herbig Ae/Be stars
[ASTERICS VO School, Nov 2017]
Herbig Ae/Be stars are 2-8 solar mass. These stars show Balmer emission lines in their stellar spectrum and infrared excess due to circumstellar dust. They roughly fall into two groups: Group I sources have a relatively strong far-IR flux. Group II sources show a similar near-IR excess as group I sources but their flux falls off strongly towards the far-IR. In this tutorial, you will learn how to use VO tools and services to access observed photometric SEDs and spectra in the near and far infrared of different stellar objects. You will compare the stars and classified them.
