The Multiband Imaging Photometer for Spitzer (MIPS)
The Multiband Imaging Photometer for Spitzer (MIPS) provides long-wavelength capability for the mission in imaging bands at 24, 70, and 160 ?m and measurements of spectral energy distributions
A Quantitative Comparison of the Small Magellanic Cloud, Large Magellanic Cloud, and Milky Way Ultraviolet to Near-Infrared Extinction Curves
We present an exhaustive quantitative comparison of all the known extinction curves in the Small and Large Magellanic Clouds (SMC and LMC) with our understanding of the general behavior of Milky Way
The mid-infrared spectrum of star-forming galaxies: Global properties of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon emission
We present a sample of low-resolution 5-38 μm Spitzer IRS spectra of the inner few square kiloparsecs of 59 nearby galaxies spanning a large range of star formation properties. A robust method for
The Calibration of Mid-Infrared Star Formation Rate Indicators
With the goal of investigating the degree to which the MIR emission traces the SFR, we analyze Spitzer 8 and 24 μm data of star-forming regions in a sample of 33 nearby galaxies with available HST
Dust Masses, PAH Abundances, and Starlight Intensities in the SINGS Galaxy Sample
Physical dust models are presented for 65 galaxies in SINGS that are strongly detected in the four IRAC bands and three MIPS bands. For each galaxy we estimate (1) the total dust mass, (2) the
A Quantitative Comparison of SMC, LMC, and Milky Way UV to NIR Extinction Curves
We present an exhaustive, quantitative comparison of all of the known extinction curves in the Small and Large Magellanic Clouds (SMC and LMC) with our understanding of the general behavior of Milky
SINGS: The SIRTF Nearby Galaxies Survey
The SIRTF Nearby Galaxy Survey is a comprehensive infrared imaging and spectroscopic survey of 75 nearby galaxies. Its primary goal is to characterize the infrared emission of galaxies and their
The Mass Accretion Rates of Intermediate-Mass T Tauri Stars
We present Hubble Space Telescope ultraviolet spectra and supporting ground-based data for a sample of nine intermediate-mass T Tauri stars (IMTTSs; 1.5–4 M⊙). The targets belong to three
The CO-to-H2 Conversion Factor from Infrared Dust Emission across the Local Group
We estimate the conversion factor relating CO emission to H2 mass, αCO, in five Local Group galaxies that span approximately an order of magnitude in metallicity—M 31, M 33, the Large Magellanic
The Anatomy of Star Formation in NGC 300
The Spitzer Space Telescope was used to study the mid- to far-infrared properties of NGC 300 and to compare dust emission to Hα to elucidate the heating of the interstellar medium (ISM) and the star
