ay 101
Ay 101
  • BH = remnant from death of a massive star.
  • How observe? - Binary star systems!
  • X-ray binaries.
  • XT - X-ray Transient system.
  • Light curve - Ellipsoidal variability.

GRO J1655-40
  • Discovered in July 1994 by CGRO.
  • X-ray Transient. Harbors a BH?
  • Superluminal jets. Model for AGN?!
observations made
Observations Made
  • Keck II NIRSPEC spectrograph.
  • First high S/N ratio K-band (IR) spectrum of a BH XT system.
  • Looking for disk emission.

Spectroscopic Data Analysis
  • Spectra of isolated stars from spectral atlas of Wallace & Hinkle (1997).
  • Equivalent widths: Absorption spectrum similar to that ofa F5-F7 III-IV star.

comments and conclusions
Comments and Conclusions
  • Derived values comparable with previous studies.
  • But a unique determination of disk contribution.
