HEAVY-ELEMENT ABUNDANCES IN TWO SUBGIANT CH STARS

Abstract

New high-resolution, high signal-to-noise-ratio spectra have been gathered for subgiant CH stars HD 4395 and HD 216219. A detailed model-atmosphere abundance analysis has been carried out, with emphasis on the determination of abundances for elements heavier than iron. The heavy-element abundance patterns in the two stars are quite similar, and appear to have been produced by neutron exposures ( τ = 0.2) which are less than those in the typical classical barium star. The abundance patterns indicate that the source of neutrons could have been either the ¹³C(α,n)¹⁶ O reaction or the ²²Ne(α,n)²⁵ Mg reaction. The evolutionary states of these stars are rediscussed in light of these new results.
