Two groups of red giants with distinct chemical abundances in the bulge globular cluster NGC 6553 through the eyes of APOGEE
(OXFORD UNIV PRESS, 2017-02)
Multiple populations revealed in globular clusters (GCs) are important windows to the formation and evolution of these stellar systems. The metal-rich GCs in the Galactic bulge are an indispensable part of this picture, ...
The Gaia-ESO Survey: Low-α element stars in the Galactic bulge
(EDP Sciences, 2017-06)
A.R.B., P.d.L., and V.H. acknowledge financial support form the ANR 14-CE33-014-01. This work was partly supported by the European Union FP7 programme through ERC grant number 320360 and by the Leverhulme Trust through ...
VVV Survey Microlensing Events in the Galactic Center Region
(Institute of Physics Publishing, 2017)
We search for microlensing events in the highly reddened areas surrounding the Galactic center using the near-IR observations with the VISTA Variables in the Vía Láctea Survey (VVV). We report the discovery of 182 new ...
New VVV Survey Globular Cluster Candidates in the Milky Way Bulge
(Institute of Physics Publishing, 2017-11)
It is likely that a number of Galactic globular clusters remain to be discovered, especially toward the Galactic bulge. High stellar density combined with high and differential interstellar reddening are the two major ...
Proper motions in the VVV Survey: Results for more than 15 million stars across NGC 6544
(EDP Sciences, 2017)
Context. In the last six years, the VISTA Variable in the Vía Láctea (VVV) survey mapped 562 sq. deg. across the bulge and southern disk of the Galaxy. However, a detailed study of these regions, which includes ∼36 globular ...
