The SVO archive of White Dwarfs from Gaia:
Currently, Gaia is making the largest, most precise three-dimensional map of our Galaxy by surveying more than a thousand million stars. Thanks to the superb capabilities of Gaia, an unprecedented number of white dwarfs with excellent both astrometric and photometric measurements is being discovered.
We made use of the Gaia data and the Virtual Observatory to build the following catalogues of white dwarfs:
- A catalogue of 73,221 white dwarfs identified using Gaia-DR2 and the Virtual Observatory (Jiménez-Esteban et al. 2018). This catalogue contains white dwarfs at any distance and provides their physical parameters (Teff, M, R, L, logg).
- A catalogue of 13,732 white dwarfs within 100 pc from Gaia-DR2 (Torres et al 2019). These white dwarfs have been classified as belonging to the thin disk, thick disc, or halo Galactic population.
- A catalogue of 77 white dwarfs with infrared excess from Gaia-DR2 (Rebassa-Mansergas et al., 2019).
- A catalogue of 112 white dwarf and main sequence unresolved binaries at less than 100 pc from Gaia EDR3. (Rebassa-Mansergas et al. 2021, submitted).
The SVO archive of White Dwarfs from Gaia is the result of a joint collaboration between the Centro de Astrobiología (CAB, CSIC-INTA) and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC). It has been developed in the framework of the Spanish Virtual Observatory project supported by the Spanish MINECO/FEDER through grant AyA2017-84089 , ASTERICS, and ESCAPE, projects supported by the European Union
Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreements
653477 and 824064. The system is maintained by the Data Archive Unit of the CAB (CSIC -INTA).
