The Be star content of young open clusters

By C. Sterken and Juan Fabregat


Abstract. We present a photometric survey aimed to characterize the Be star population of young open clusters. It is found that in these clusters early-type Be stars are more frequent than in the galactic field, and late-type Be stars are scarce or inexistent. We interpret this result as evidence for an evolutionary enhancement of the Be phenomenon towards the end of the main sequence lifetime. 1
