P.Tisserand Rencontres du Vietnam Physical Microlensing Background
P.Tisserand Rencontres du Vietnam « BLUE BUMPER » Bright stars of the upper main sequence Amplification < 2 + Chromatic Variation Easy to reject ! known physical background : (discovered by MACHO)
P.Tisserand Rencontres du Vietnam Candidates follow-up : longer baseline ( + 3 yrs) EROS 1 – LMC#1 : MACHO – LMC#23 : ~ 1992 ~ 1998 ~ 2001 ~ candidates show a new bump a few years later !! Variable Stars = Background Withdrawn !
P.Tisserand Rencontres du Vietnam (Probable) New background: Be type Stars. EROS1-LMC#1 source star have emission features. ZOOM on the 2 nd fluctuation:
P.Tisserand Rencontres du Vietnam Supernovae : ~ 590 Supernovae detectable If : Appeared close to a cataloged star. or SN cataloged. 26 Supernovae detected at low S/N. (Similar rate for MACHO) == Serious background !
P.Tisserand Rencontres du Vietnam and / or Supernovae elimination : Galaxies seen on reference images Fit of an “asymmetric” microlensing light curve : Elimination of the 3 remaining EROS-2 LMC candidates (#5, #6 et #7) : Better Photometry!

P.Tisserand Rencontres du Vietnam Data Analysis
P.Tisserand Rencontres du Vietnam Principe of the analysis: Detection efficiency controlled by a MONTE-CARLO simulation: => False microlensing effects added on real light curve (~ 99% stable) They passed the same selection cuts!
P.Tisserand Rencontres du Vietnam MACHO : estimate an additional 30% error due to blending EROS2 : With HST LMC luminosity function weighted with the probability to generate an observable event. → ~1% Blending problem Star cataloged and surveyed Fainter star located in the seeing disk (less than 2”) Optical depth estimate : Using bright star, we considerably reduce that problem under-estimated
P.Tisserand Rencontres du Vietnam Crowded field:
P.Tisserand Rencontres du Vietnam Better resolution → better rejection of variable stars Statistics still excellent due to a better Largely reduce the Blending problem Remember galactic center ! Bright Star Sample Magnitude cut different for each field : Mag [16-R max ] with R max [ ] Homogeneous sample : ~uniform photometric resolution (~7%) LMC : ~6 Million SMC : ~0.9 Million First time in LMC ! On our 33.4 Million stars sample, we retained : CLUMP Efficiency LMC
P.Tisserand Rencontres du Vietnam Number of events expected Macho mass Duration t E Number Magellanic events (full halo) effi. = 100%Real effi M ~ 2.2 days~ 2500~ M ~ 7 days~ 785~173 1 M ~ 70 days~ 78~35 10 M ~7.4 months~ 25~9 100 M ~ 2 years~ 8~0.4 in the case of a dark halo 100% machos τ LMC ~ τ SMC ~ For 6.9 million bright stars monitored during 6.7 years × Efficiency t E ~ 70 ( ) ½ days M M We need ~13 events to confirm the positive signal of MACHO at 20%
P.Tisserand Rencontres du Vietnam No new microlensing event detected Known since 1997 (EROS+MACHO) → Probably due to SMC lens (for a halo lens, earth motion would distort the light curve visibly) t E = 120 days EROS2-SMC#1 Duration expected for SMC self-lensing 1 candidate in the SMC still selected
P.Tisserand Rencontres du Vietnam _3% at M Final EROS combined limit ( ) _7% at 0.4 M _10% at 1 M LMC data set / No event LMC + SMC data set with 1 SMC halo candidate Domain excluded from all EROS data ZOOM
P.Tisserand Rencontres du Vietnam Comparison : EROS-2/MACHO 2 different strategies : 2 different data sets EROS2 : ~ 7 Million Bright stars in sparse wide field (~84 deg2 LMC + ~10deg2 SMC) MACHO: ~ 11 Million faint and bright stars in dense field (~13.4 deg2, LMC bar) ~2 Million bright stars in common ! MACHO field EROS2 field LMC Our Measurement is mainly based on a less crowded area Photometry easier and result less affected by blending Remark : A positive result must be seen everywhere, not be concentrated in a special area
P.Tisserand Rencontres du Vietnam Our analysis is conservative : - Use only bright-well measured sub-sample of Magellanic stars (~20% total) - Largely reduce the blending effect Measurement obtained mainly with stars in the outer part of the LMC (sparse field) Machos in the mass range M < M < 5 M are ruled out as the primary occupants of the Milky Way Halo. Result compatible with the Optical depth expected from the known star distribution (self- lensing + galactic disk stars) 2 different Monte-Carlo have been computed to estimate our detection efficiency: _ simulated microlensing effect on true light curve _ fake images that pass all the photometric chain with simulated microlensed star ► they are in excellent agreement for the bright star sample. An all star sample analysis (33.4 millions) has been done with stricter cuts. Only 5 microlensing candidates have been selected : for one, the lens is a galactic red dwarf star located at about 300pc. (result also compatible with self-lensing) Serious background : Supernovae & Variable stars Many former candidates died for these reasons (ex: EROS2-LMC#1 and MACHO-LMC#23 ) Discussion of the EROS2 result
P.Tisserand Rencontres du Vietnam Difference between MACHO/EROS2 2 completely different data sets : _Most of the MACHO stars are considered too faint for us : ~9 millions. _MACHO observation concentrated in the LMC bar : crowded region Blending effect : MACHO suggest an additional 30% systematic error on the result. Our limit is at f<7% for 0.4 M , about 13 events would have been necessary to confirm the MACHO signal. The higher MACHO optical depth may be due, in part, to self-lensing in central part of the LMC. But this would contradict LMC models (Mancini et al., 2004) which suggest that only 1- 2 MACHO candidates should be expected to be due to self-lensing (#9 and #14 are already known to be self-lensing). 5 MACHO candidates are really convincing : #1, #5, #9, #14 and #21. 3 are explained by LMC self-lensing or due to a galactic lens. Possible confirmation : _ OGLE III and SuperMACHO _ AGAPE, MEGA and WeCaPP (toward M31) _ Photometric follow-up of candidates
