Available photometric systems

Here follows a list of the photometric systems for which we are presently providing bolometric corrections, extinction coefficients, isochrones, and simulations of stellar populations. The list extends those you find in our papers, in particular those in Girardi et al. (2002), Girardi et al. (2005), Girardi et al. (2008), Marigo et al. (2008), Aringer et al. (2009). In a few cases (as indicated in the last column), we have also revised the zeropoints in view of new literature data. The photometric systems below are also used in the following databases and web interfaces:
