Projects per year
We study the near-infrared properties of 690 Mira candidates in the central region of the Large Magellanic Cloud, based on time-series observations at JHK s. We use densely sampled I-band observations from the OGLE project to generate template light curves in the near-infrared and derive robust mean magnitudes at those wavelengths. We obtain near-infrared Period-Luminosity relations for oxygen-rich Miras with a scatter as low as 0.12 mag at K s. We study the Period-Luminosity-Color relations and the color excesses of carbon-rich Miras, which show evidence for a substantially different reddening law.
