Abstract

The first photoelectric light curves of the RS CVn-type eclipsing binary RT CrB are presented. There is no indication about the existence of wave like distortion on its light curve. The light curves were analyzed by using Wood's and Nelson, Davis, and Etzel's methods. The radii of the components are nearly identical. The solutions indicate that the cooler component has a later spectral type between K0 and K2.
