[13.11] FUSE Spectra of LMC B Supergiants

D. Massa (Emergent), A.W. Fullerton (U. Victoria & JHU), R.K. Prinja (UCL), E.L. Fitzpatrick (Villanova)

We present far ultraviolet FUSE spectra of normal and chemically peculiar early B supergiants in the Large Magellanic Cloud. We discuss the relative strengths of both their wind and photospheric lines and the relationship between their far UV and optical spectra.

This work is based on observations made with the NASA-CNES-CSA Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer. FUSE is operated for NASA by the Johns Hopkins University under NASA contract NAS5-32985.
