The Chemical Homogeneity of Open Star Clusters
Clusters are the birth site of stars and, as such, very important constituents of the Milky Way disc. We are carrying out a spectroscopic study of open clusters of different ages in order to measure their element abundances and to investigate the degree of chemical homogeneity among their members. We will also study cluster-to-cluster metallicity variations for clusters of a given age and Galactocentric distance.
