Long-term Light Curves of AM CVn Systems

In Levitan et al. (2015) we describe the long-term photometric behavior of AM CVn systems. Here, we provide access to all light curves described in our paper, including for non-outbursting AM CVn system. Data is from the Palomar Transient Factory (PTF), the Catalina Real-time Transient Survey (CRTS), and the Lincoln Near Earth Asteroid Research survey (LINEAR). The CRTS data comes from three separate telescopes: the Catalina Sky Survey (CSS), the Siding Spring Survey (SSS), and the Mt. Lemmon Survey (MLS). We also provide data from targeted observations of CR Boo using the Palomar 60" telescope, as described in Section 3.1.1 of the paper. Data processing is described in our paper and the references therein for each of the surveys.

Below, we reproduce Table 1 from the paper and include links to both interactive versions of the light curves and to the data itself as compressed archives for each system. You may also download all the lightcurves in one archive.

Please send any questions for feedback to David Levitan (dlevitan [at] astro.caltech.edu).

Systems are sorted by orbital period. System with no orbital period in the literature are at the bottom and sorted by quiescence magnitude.
a Names given here are either the IAU variable star name or the full name given in the discovery paper.
b Survey columns are of the form "# of detections / # of observations".
c Since no system has observations from both MLS and SSS, we combine these surveys into one column and indicate the appropriate survey.
d SDSSJ0804+1616 has non-outburst variability.
e SDSSJ0902+3819 was recently reported to outburst. Our data here does not include this outubrst.
