ACRONYM. III. Candidate young low-mass stars (Schneider+, 2019)

Nearby young candidates were observed with the goal of identifying young, nearby, low-mass stars. High-resolution optical spectra were acquired for all targets to measure radial velocities and youth diagnostics. Fifty-two targets were observed with HIRES (Vogt et al. 1994SPIE.2198..362V) on the Keck I telescope. All observations were taken with the 0.861" slit, resulting in a spectral resolution of {lambda}/{Delta}{lambda}~58000 covering a wavelength range of 4900-9300 {AA}. The GG475 filter was utilized with the red cross-disperser in order to maximize the throughput at the longest wavelengths. We observed 15 targets with ESPaDOnS (Donati et al. 2006ASPC..358..362D) on the CFHT. ESPaDOnS covers a wavelength range of 3700-10400 {AA}, with a spectral resolution of {lambda}/{Delta}{lambda}~68000. The MIKE optical spectrograph located on the Clay telescope at the Magellan Observatory was used to characterize 122 of our targets. We used the 0.5" slit for all MIKE observations, which gives a spectral resolution of {lambda}/{Delta}{lambda}~35000 over the wavelength range 4900-10000 {AA}. Two-hundred and twenty-nine targets were observed with the Echelle Spectrograph on the 2.5 m Irenee Du Pont Telescope. All observations were taken with a 1.0" slit, resulting in a resolution of {lambda}/{Delta}{lambda}~32000 covering the 4000-9000 {AA} wavelength range.
