The Photodetector Array Camera and Spectrometer (PACS) on the Herschel Space Observatory
The Photodetector Array Camera and Spectrometer (PACS) is one of the three science instruments on ESA's far infrared and submil- limetre observatory. It employs two Ge:Ga photoconductor arraysExpand
Nearby Debris Disk Systems with High Fractional Luminosity Reconsidered
By searching the IRAS and ISO databases, we compiled a list of 60 debris disks that exhibit the highest fractional luminosity values ( fd > 10 � 4 ) in the vicinity of the Sun (d 5 ; 10 � 4 areExpand
TNOs are cool: a survey of the Trans-Neptunian Region — Herschel observations and thermal modeling of large samples of Kuiper Belt Objects
We present results of more than 50 TNOs (classical, Plutinos, SDO, detached) derived from Herschel ("TNOs are Cool"-project) and Spitzer observations: sizes, albedos, densities, dynamic group sampleExpand
“TNOs are Cool”: A survey of the trans-Neptunian region - IX. Thermal properties of Kuiper belt objects and Centaurs from combined Herschel and Spitzer observations
Aims. The goal of this work is to characterize the ensemble thermal properties of the Centaurs/trans-Neptunian population. Methods. Thermal flux measurements obtained with Herschel/PACS andExpand
STRUCTURE AND EVOLUTION OF DEBRIS DISKS AROUND F-TYPE STARS. I. OBSERVATIONS, DATABASE, AND BASIC EVOLUTIONARY ASPECTS
Although photometric and spectroscopic surveys with the Spitzer Space Telescope remarkably increased the number of well-studied debris disks around A-type and Sun-like stars, detailed analyses ofExpand
ALMA OBSERVATIONS OF THE MOLECULAR GAS IN THE DEBRIS DISK OF THE 30 Myr OLD STAR HD 21997
The 30?Myr old A3-type star HD?21997 is one of the two known debris dust disks having a measurable amount of cold molecular gas. With the goal of understanding the physical state, origin, andExpand
Discovery of molecular gas around HD 131835 in an APEX molecular line survey of bright debris disks
Debris disks are considered to be gas-poor, but recent observations revealed molecular or atomic gas in several 10-40 Myr old systems. We used the APEX and IRAM 30m radiotelescopes to search for COExpand
Molecular Gas in Young Debris Disks
Gas-rich primordial disks and tenuous gas-poor debris disks are usually considered as two distinct evolutionary phases of the circumstellar matter. Interestingly, the debris disk around the youngExpand
The size, shape, density and ring of the dwarf planet Haumea from a stellar occultation
TLDR
Observations from multiple Earth-based observatories of Haumea passing in front of a distant star (a multi-chord stellar occultation) report the presence of a ring with an opacity of 0.5, which constrains the three-dimensional orientation of Haumesa and its triaxial shape, which is inconsistent with a homogeneous body in hydrostatic equilibrium.

The Albedo-Color Diversity of Transneptunian Objects
We analyze albedo data obtained using the Herschel Space Observatory that reveal the existence of two distinct types of surface among midsized trans-Neptunian objects. A color-albedo diagram showsExpand
