Interstellar Extinction in the Gaia Photometric Systems

A. Bridžius / V. Vansevičius
Published Online: 2017-02-08 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/astro-2017-0093


Three medium-band photometric systems proposed for the Gaia space mission are intercompared in determining color excesses for stars of spectral classes from O to M at V = 18 mag. A possibility of obtaining a three-dimensional map of the interstellar extinction is discussed.

Keywords: techniques; photometric; stars; fundamental parameters; interstellar extinction; Gaia orbiting observatory
