During the final growth phase of giant planets, accretion is thought to be controlled by a surrounding circumplanetary disk. Current astrophysical accretion disk models rely on hydromagnetic turbulence or gravitoturbulence as the source of effective viscosity within the disk. However, the magnetically-coupled accreting region in these models is so limited that the disk may not support inflow at all radii, or at the required rate. Here, we examine the conditions needed for self-consistent…

SHOCK-DRIVEN ACCRETION IN CIRCUMPLANETARY DISKS: OBSERVABLES AND SATELLITE FORMATION

Circumplanetary disks (CPDs) control the growth of planets, supply material for satellites to form, and provide observational signatures of young forming planets. We have carried out two-dimensional

Magnetic Fields and Accreting Giant Planets around PDS 70

Recent high-spatial/spectral-resolution observations have enabled the formation mechanisms of giant planets to be constrained, especially at the final stages. The current interpretation of such

Inside-out Planet Formation. V. Structure of the Inner Disk as Implied by the MRI

The ubiquity of Earth- to super-Earth-sized planets found very close to their host stars has motivated in situ formation models. In particular, inside-out planet formation is a scenario in which

FINAL MASSES OF GIANT PLANETS. II. JUPITER FORMATION IN A GAS-DEPLETED DISK

First, we study the final masses of giant planets growing in protoplanetary disks through capture of disk gas, by employing empirical formulae for the gas capture rate and a shallow disk gap model,

MRI-active inner regions of protoplanetary discs. I. A detailed model of disc structure

Short-period super-Earth-sized planets are common. Explaining how they form near their present orbits requires understanding the structure of the inner regions of protoplanetary discs. Previous

We examine whether the magnetorotational instability (MRI) can serve as a mechanism of angular momentum transport in circumplanetary disks. For the MRI to operate the ionization degree must be

Global 3D radiation magnetohydrodynamic simulations for FU Ori’s accretion disc and observational signatures of magnetic fields

FU Ori is the prototype of FU Orionis systems that are outbursting protoplanetary discs. Magnetic fields in FU Ori’s accretion discs have previously been detected using spectropolarimetry

ACCRETING CIRCUMPLANETARY DISKS: OBSERVATIONAL SIGNATURES

I calculate the spectral energy distributions of accreting circumplanetary disks using atmospheric radiative transfer models. Circumplanetary disks only accreting at 10−10 M☉ yr−1 around a 1 MJ

Orbital Evolution of Moons in Weakly Accreting Circumplanetary Disks

We investigate the formation of hot and massive circumplanetary disks (CPDs) and the orbital evolution of satellites formed in these disks. Because of the comparatively small size-scale of the

Magnetically driven outflows from Jovian circum-planetary accretion disks

We discuss the possibility to launch an outflow from the close vicinity of a protoplanetary core considering a model scenario where the protoplanet surrounded by a circum-planetary accretion disk is

Circum-planetary discs as bottlenecks for gas accretion onto giant planets

With hundreds of exoplanets detected, it is necessary to revisit giant planets accretion models to explain their mass distribution. In particular, formation of sub-jovian planets remains unclear,

We propose a generalized model for stellar spin-down, disk accretion, and truncation, and the origin of winds, jets, and bipolar outflows from young stellar objects. We consider the steady state

We continue our numerical study of the migration of an already formed proto-Jovian companion embedded in a circumstellar disk. We first study the sensitivity of the planet's migration to its mass

Magnetic fields in protoplanetary disks

Abstract Magnetic fields likely play a key role in the dynamics and evolution of protoplanetary disks. They have the potential to efficiently transport angular momentum by MHD turbulence or via the

We describe a model for the long-term evolution of a circumplanetary disk that is fed mass from a circumstellar disk and contains regions of low turbulence (dead zones). We show that such disks can
