Fr.: HD 43317
A → hot star of → apparent visual magnitude 6.61 lying in the constellation → Orion. HD 43317 has a B3.5V → spectral type and has no detected binary companion. Its chemical surface abundances agree with the solar abundances, but with some co-rotating He abundance spots at the stellar surface. The CoRoT satellite revealed that HD 43317 is a → hybrid pulsator of → Slowly Pulsating B star (SPB)/ → Beta Cephei type. Its → rotation period is 0.897673(4) days. Zeeman signatures in the Stokes V profiles of HD 43317 are clearly detected and rotationally modulated, which proves that this star exhibits an oblique magnetic field. The strength of the dipolar magnetic field is of the order of 1 kG to 1.5 kG (Buysschaert et al., 2017, A&A 605, A104).
