We present the results of a spectroscopic survey of binaries among 42
bright (mV<11) Herbig Ae/Be stars in both hemispheres. Radial
velocity variations were found in 7 targets, 4 are new spectroscopic
binaries. The Li I 6708Å absorption line (absent feature in simple
HAeBe stars spectra) indicates the presence of a cooler companion in 6
HAeBe spectrum binaries, 4 of which are new detections. Few stars
classified as possible Herbig Ae/Be stars are not confirmed as such.
While for short-period (P<100 days) spectroscopic binaries, the observed
binary frequency is 10%, the true spectroscopic binary frequency for
Herbig Ae/Be stars may be as high as 35%.
Key words: binaries: spectroscopic -- stars: early-type -- stars: pre-Main Sequence
-- stars: statistics

The OpenURL standard is a protocol for transmission of metadata describing the resource that you wish to access.
An OpenURL link contains article metadata and directs it to the
OpenURL server of your choice. The OpenURL server can provide access
to the resource and also offer complementary services (specific
search engine, export of references...). The OpenURL link can be
generated by different means.
If your librarian has set up your subscription with an
OpenURL resolver, OpenURL links appear automatically on the abstract pages.
