Theoretical isochrones in the HST/ACS WFC VEGAmag system

The present directory (isoc_acs_wfc) contain the data files for the HST/ACS WFC VEGAmag system. This is a preliminary release, not yet described in papers. Anyway, before downloading, it will be useful to give a look at Paper I:

  • The Electronic paper describing the bolometric corrections: Theoretical isochrones in several photometric systems I. Johnson-Cousins-Glass, HST/WFPC2, HST/NICMOS, Washington, and ESO Imaging Survey filter sets, by L. Girardi, G. Bertelli, A. Bressan, C. Chiosi, M.A.T. Groenewegen, P. Marigo, B. Salasnich, and A. Weiss, 2002, Astronomy & Astrophysics, 391, 195.
  • The Sirianni et al. (2005) description of the ACS photometric system (including tables with the zeropoints for ABmag and STmag).
  • The Reference table with a summary description of the stellar evolutionary models in use, and their basic references. This allows you to know the differences between the several isochrone files (and better than the minimal table you see below).
  • The readme.txt file (ascii file, 13 Kby), with a field-by-field description of all files in the database.
  • Here you can download the (gzipped) data files:
