ISOCAM, the camera on–board ISO, takes images of the sky in the wavelength range 2.5 to 18 m. It features two independent channels, containing each a 32 32 pixel detector: the short wavelength channel – 2.5 to 5.5 m, and the long wavelength channel – 4 to 18 m. Each channel features 10 or 11 discrete band pass filters and CVFs with a resolution better than(More)

Iso-Lw s mapping observations of the Serpens molecular cloud core are presented. The spectral range is 50 −(More)
Several nearby star formation regions have been surveyed in two ISOCAM bands (centred at 6.7 and 14.3 m). Stars with cicumstellar emission are eeec-tively separated from reddened background stars and in general the number of new young stellar sources is comparable to the number of previously known within the mapped regions. Most of these new YSOs are faint(More)
We report the first results from an ISOCAM survey for low-luminosity, young stellar objects (YSOs) in nearby star formation regions. The present Letter concerns three regions within the Chamaeleon dark clouds, with a total area coverage of 0.8 square degrees, representing 35 % of the presently approved survey programme. The survey is conducted in two(More)
We present the rst results of a mid-IR survey of the star formation region in the Serpens Cloud. In total, 0.22 square degrees were mapped with ISOCAM in the two broad band lters LW2 (5-8.5 m) and LW3 (12-18 m), and uxes were obtained for 550 and 210 point sources in LW2 and LW3, respectively. The colour index 14:3=6:7] was used to obtain a robust sample of(More)
We present results from an ISOCAM survey in the two broad band filters LW2 (5-8.5 µm) and LW3 (12-18 µm) of a 0.13 square degree coverage of the Serpens Main Cloud Core. A total of 392 sources were detected in the 6.7 µm band and 139 in the 14.3 µm band to a limiting sensitivity of ∼ 2 mJy. We identified 58 Young Stellar Objects (YSOs) with mid-IR excess(More)
The results of a deep mid-IR ISOCAM survey of the L1551 dark molecular cloud are presented. The aim of this survey is a search for new YSO (Young Stellar Object) candidates, using two broad-band filters centred at 6.7 and 14.3 µm. Although two regions close to the centre of L1551 had to be avoided due to saturation problems, 96 sources were detected in(More)
