[28.03] Fundamental Transformation Equations Between the u'g'r'i'z' and UBVRCIC Filter Systems

D. Allen, C. T. Rodgers, R. Canterna, E. Hausel, E. Flores (University of Wyoming), J. A. Smith (LANL)

Rodgers et al. (2005) showed the UBVRCIC to u'g'r'i'z' transformation equations are luminosity class dependent. That study developed transformation equations for luminosity class V (main sequence) stars using Landolt (1992) identified equatorial standards with spectroscopically confirmed luminosity classes. Here, we present new data for both luminosity class V and III bright standard stars with known metallicities. These data will be used to develop robust transformation equations for stars of these two luminosity classes.
