Abstract

TIC 033834484 and TIC 309658435 are long-period pulsating subdwarf B stars, which were observed extensively (675 and 621 days, respectively) by the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS). The high-precision photometric light curve reveals the presence of more than 40 pulsation modes including both stars. All the oscillation frequencies that we found are associated with gravity (g)-mode pulsations, with frequencies spanning from 80 µHz (2 500 s) to 400 µHz (12 000 s). We utilize the asteroseismic tools including asymptotic period spacings and rotational frequency multiplets in order to identify the pulsational modes. We found dipole (l = 1) mode sequences for both targets and calculate the mean period spacing of dipole modes (ΔPl=1), which allows us to identify the modes. Frequency multiplets provide a rotation period of 64 d for TIC 033834484. From follow-up ground-based spectroscopy, we find that TIC 033834484 has an effective temperature of 24 210 K (140), a surface gravity of log g/cms-2 = 5.28 (03) and TIC 309658435 has an effective temperature of 25 910 K (150), a surface gravity of log g/cms-2 = 5.48 (03).
