Abstract

A calibration of color indices of the Strömvil photometric system in terms of physical parameters of stars is presented. The calibration is based on photoelectric photometry of about 1000 stars with known effective temperatures, distances, gravities and metallicities. The observations were accomplished in 2000-2003 with the 1.5 meter telescope of the Steward Observatory. The distances were taken from the Hipparcos catalog, and Te, log g, [Fe/H]) were collected from several literature sources and averaged.

Keywords: stars; fundamental parameters; multicolor photometry; Strömvil photometric system
