Jacoby: Catalogue of Stellar Spectra (Preview)


The library contains digital spectra for 161 stars of spectral classes O through M and luminosity classes I, III and V in the wavelength range 3510 A to 7427 A. The resolution is approximately 4.5 A, while the typical photometric uncertainty of each resolution element is approximately 1 percent and broadband variations are less than 3 percent.

The spectra have been loaded into the database as preview data keeping the original resolution.
