  • Spitzer/JPL M1-42 (Pottasch et al. 2007) • Spitzer IRS provided high- quality spectra covering important ions of e.g., Ne, O, S, Ar (& Fe, Si, Mg) • Need for ICFs is reduced • Fine-structure lines have small T-dependence Pottasch, Bernard-Salas & collaborators Stanghellini, Shaw & collaborators Guzman-Ramirez & collaborators
  • HST/STIS TS-01• prominent ions of He, C, N, O [C IV] He II Stasińska et al. 2010• avoids usually large ICF(N) [N V] STIS• at right, TS01, the most O-poor PN [N IV] known (O/H~1/70 x solar)• IUE quality superseded by HST COS & STIS; as yet, small database HST/STIS Cy19 : Dufour et al. – 10 MW PNe Guerrero et al. – NGC 6543

Wesson (private communication) …not a stationary target
  • talk by Gonçalves •calculate ionization correction factors (ICFs) per a recipe or model* to derive X/H *unless you have observed all relevant ionization stages ICFs best determined using photoionization models; otherwise, exploit IP coincidences• Kingsburgh & Barlow (1994): developed a good set still used by many• Henry & Ferland are currently running sets of CLOUDY models to evaluate ICFs under a wide range of stellar T*, Ne, and Z.… so at each step we have an opportunity fordivergence, independent of measured fluxes!

(2008): NGC 6543 abundance model with 800K NLTE star and wind model agrees inclusions best reproduces observed with ORL values for He, C, O (but spectrum not N)• Zhang (2008): NGC 7009 - high • García-Rojas et al. (2009): observed resolution line profiles suggest ORLs, several PNe with WC central stars; CELs may originate in kinematically t2 ~0.04; no evidence of cool, C-rich different regions inclusions, even when the central stars are H-deficient• Williams et al. (2008): UV absorption abundances in 3 PNe agree better with CEL than ORL abundances This is becoming testable, and will eventually be sorted out…

  • Ne vs. O Maciel et al. 2010 + SMC LMC MW Maciel et al.: no correlation between Ne/O and O over >2 dex in O/H• Wang & Liu (2008): Ne, O production only at 12+log(O/H) < 8 (<ZSMC)• Milingo et al. (2010): some evidence for Ne production, based on on comparison with H II regions; no difference between Type I and Type II PNe• Peimbert et al. (1992); Peña et al. (this meeting): argue that the ICF for Ne (Ne/O=Ne++/O++) is inadequate at low ionization typically found in H II regions  lower limits, offering an explanation for Milingo et al.’s finding

(2009) Aasymm,symm - Aall filled: SMC open: LMC • Average He and N are higher for asymmetric PNe than for symmetric PNe • The opposite is true for C. • Higher O, Ne, S, Ar in asymmetric PNe  younger progenitors • SMC PNe tend to be C-rich, implying no HBB
  • talk by Karakas; poster by Sterling et al.• Sharpee et al. (2007) detected lines of Br, Kr, Se Xe, Rb, Ba, and Pb; Te & I (?); Kr, Xe enhanced• Sterling & Dinerstein (2008), detected Kr &/or Se in 81 of 120 PNe: - Non-Type I: [Se/(O)]ave= +0.36 [Kr/(O)]ave = +1.02  Kr significantly enhanced Kr - Type I PNe show little s-process enrichment - Positive correlation between s-process enrichments and C/O, as expected in TDU - No significant difference with central star type• Future progress relies heavily on knowing transition rates and collision strengths
  • poster by Delgado Inglada et al.• Delgado Inglada et al. (2009): 33 low-ionization PNe• median 12+log(Fe/H) = 5.85 (4.27 – 6.49)• depletion range [Fe/H]: -1.01 to -3.2 (=7.50; Asplund et al. 2009) - Fe > 90% depleted - Mdust/Mgas ≥ 1.3 x 10-3 - depletion scales with C/O ratio (poster) See also: Rodriguez & Rubin (2005); Stasińska & Szczerba (1999)
  • • He, C, N, O, Ne, S, Ar, Fe, s-process abundances have been determined in 10’s -100’s of PNe in the MW and MC’s.• IR & UV observations have provided some improved results.• Significant disparities result from different analysis choices.• O, Ne, and Ar are positively correlated with each other, as expected. S is problematic. In general, scatterPNe > scatterH2BCG.• C, N generally exceed solar, consistent with current LIMS model predictions including TDU; low-C PNe in the Milky Way & LMC show evidence of HBB.• Models cover the parameter space of observed abundances• s-process elements can be significantly enhanced above solar in non-Type I PNe.• Fe is significantly depleted in PNe
  • (aside from big ground & space telescopes & good spectrographs)• atomic data for more atoms, wider regimes - “normal data” for heavy atoms (Sterling poster) - low-T parameters for light atoms (Fang poster)• improved ICFs (metallicity; ionization; geometry)• more 2D abundance studies/3D modeling• abundance discrepancy resolution• coordination/testing among 5-LA programs• understanding the effect of binarity on observed abundances in CE scenario• development of a “strong-line method” when direct Te measurement not possible
