Infrared Studies on Active Binaries and Circumstellar Matter

  • F. Scaltriti
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (ASIC, volume 319)


The infrared properties of RS CVn-type systems are reviewed. The following points are examined: a) amplitude of the wave-like distortion, b) spectrophotometry, c) infrared excesses. In particular, point c) has been explored in some detail owing to its relevance as far as the evolutionary scenario of RS CVn’s is concerned.
