Reduction Algorithms for the Multiband Imaging Photometer for Spitzer
ABSTRACT We describe the data reduction algorithms for the Multiband Imaging Photometer for Spitzer (MIPS). These algorithms were based on extensive preflight testing and modeling of the Si:As (24Expand

Debris disk evolution around a stars
We report 24 and/or 70 μm measurements of ~160 A-type main-sequence stars using the Multiband Imaging Photometer for Spitzer (MIPS). Their ages range from 5 to 850 Myr, based on estimates from theExpand

New Infrared Emission Features and Spectral Variations in NGC 7023
We observed the reflection nebula NGC 7023, with the Short-High module and the long-slit Short-Low and Long-Low modules of the Infrared Spectrograph on the Spitzer Space Telescope. We also presentExpand

Debris Disks around Sun-like Stars
We have observed nearly 200 FGK stars at 24 and 70 ?m with the Spitzer Space Telescope. We identify excess infrared emission, including a number of cases where the observed flux is more than 10 timesExpand
