Probing the outer atmosphere of carbon stars - C2H2, HCN and C3 features in the SWS range
2000 (English)In: ISO beyond the peaks: The 2nd ISO workshop on analytical spectroscopy, ESA-SP 456, 2000Conference paper (Other scientific)
We have obtained ISO-SWS spectra of a number of carbon-rich AGB stars in the wavelength range 2.4 - 44 μm with a resolution of about 400. We compare these spectra with results of hydrostatic and dynamic model atmospheres. Of special interest are the features which are formed far out in the atmosphere like the C2H2, HCN and C3 features. For these outer regions of the atmosphere deviations from hydrostatic structures are to be expected.
