Scanner observations of shell stars ϕ Persei and ψ Persei

  • N. S. Tur
  • P. S. Goraya


Spectrophotometric energy distribution data of the shell stars ϕ Per and ψ Per are reported in the wavelength range λλ3200–8000 Å. The effective temperature of these stars is derived by comparison of observed energy distribution with theoretical models. Both the stars show higher values of derived effective temperature. The continuum energy distribution in the ultraviolet region has also be discussed.
