Abstract: The mid-infrared spectra of asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars residing in the globular cluster 47 Tucanae, observed with the Spitzer Space Telescope (Lebzelter et al. 2006), exhibit a variety of significant dust features. In this poster we present model spectrum fits that were generated with an automated fitting procedure first introduced by Dijkstra (2007), which combines the radiative transfer code DUSTY with the genetic algorithm PIKAIA.
