Cepheids
Cepheids

  • 4-7 M

  • Formerly B stars

  • Young ~50 Myr

  • Post-RGB, core He burning

  • Evolve without strong mass loss of O stars

Thanks to Henrietta Leavitt


Multiplicity
Multiplicity

  • Star formation

    Binary, triple,….

    Distribution of mass ratios

    Maximum separation

    High vs low mass

  • Basis: ground-based orbits

Thanks to Henrietta Leavitt


High mass companions iue survey
High Mass Companions: IUE Survey

  • Particularly complete binary information

  • Evolved cool stars: sharp lines

  • Hot companions dominate in UV

  • Observed the 75 brightest Cepheids with IUE

  • All companions through early A detected

  • 21% companions

  • Using RV: 34%

Thanks to Henrietta Leavitt


Energy distributions
Energy Distributions

  • Hot companions

  • Normalized at 1600 A

  • Generally very low reddening

  • Well determined spectral types, mass

Thanks to Henrietta Leavitt


Mass ratios
Mass Ratios

  • M2/M1

  • Strong preference for low mass companions

  • Selection: orbital periods longer than 1 year

  • Contrast: binaries with P<40d: equal mass preference (Tokovinin, 2000)

Thanks to Henrietta Leavitt


Multiplicity completeness
Multiplicity: Completeness

  • Cepheids with orbits

  • 18 observed with IUE => hot companions known

  • Multiplicity?

M2unknown

Thanks to Henrietta Leavitt


Multiplicity completeness1
Multiplicity: Completeness

UV high res

  • High resolution UV spectra (HST, IUE): velocity of companion

  • 8 of 18

  • 5 of 8 are triples

Thanks to Henrietta Leavitt


Multiplicity s sge
Multiplicity:S Sge

  • Orbit => mass function: M1, M2, sin i

  • Mass from IUE spectrum

  • Secondary double

S Sge B IUE

Multiplicity completeness2
Multiplicity: Completeness

Triples

  • Cepheids with orbits + companion spectrum

  • 8 (possibly 9) are triple: 44% (50%)

Thanks to Henrietta Leavitt


Low mass companions
Low Mass Companions?

  • Cepheid companions young

  • Alpha Per Cluster: age of a typical Cepheid

  • Rosat observations: filled symbols are X-ray detections

  • Essentially all stars cooler than F5 V

  • Field stars would not be detected in X-rays

Thanks to Henrietta Leavitt

Chandra observation of polaris
Chandra Observation of Polaris

  • Center 3’ of ACIS-I field

  • Putative components marked

  • A = Aa + Ab

  • B F3 V

  • C, D

  • X-ray but no 2MASS: background AGN

Thanks to Henrietta Leavitt


System summary
System Summary

  • A = Aa +Ab

  • B (no low mass companion)

  • 2 possible distant stars (0.16 and 0.29 pc)

  • Searched:

    Magnitude difference of 15 mag

    Mass ratio range of 10

    Separation of 0.1 pc

Thanks to Henrietta Leavitt


Polaris a
Polaris A

  • Originally: no full amplitude Cepheid had been detected in X-rays

  • Probability favored Ab dwarf companion

  • BAAS 2009: Engle, Guinan, Evans, and DePasquale X-rays with XMM from 2 other Cepheids

  • X-rays not so good for unresolved low mass companions

  • Cepheid + K companion

  • Very interesting for atmospheric heating

Thanks to Henrietta Leavitt


Multiplicity results
