Context. Debris disks are thought to be extrasolar analogs to the solar system planetesimal belts. The star Fomalhaut harbors a cold debris belt at 140 AU comparable to the Edgeworth-Kuiper belt, as well as evidence of a warm dust component, unresolved by singledish telescopes, which is suspected of being a bright analog to the solar system’s zodiacal dust. Aims. Interferometric observations obtained with the VLTI/VINCI instrument and the Keck Interferometer Nuller have identified nearand mid…

Models of the η Corvi Debris Disk from the Keck Interferometer, Spitzer, and Herschel
Debris disks are signposts of analogs to small-body populations of the solar system, often, however, with much higher masses and dust production rates. The disk associated with the nearby star η Crv
A near-infrared interferometric survey of debris-disk stars - IV. An unbiased sample of 92 southern stars observed in H band with VLTI/PIONIER
Context. Detecting and characterizing circumstellar dust is a way to study the architecture and evolution of planetary systems. Cold dust in debris disks only traces the outer regions. Warm and hot
The Inner Debris Structure in the Fomalhaut Planetary System
Fomalhaut plays an important role in the study of debris disks and small bodies in other planetary systems. The proximity and luminosity of the star make key features of its debris, like the water
A near-infrared interferometric survey of debris-disk stars
Context. Hot exozodiacal dust has been shown to be present in the innermost regions of an increasing number of main sequence stars over the past 15 yr. However, the origin of hot exozodiacal dust and
Dust Production Rates in the Fomalhaut Debris Disk from SOFIA/FORCAST Mid-infrared Imaging
We present the first spatially resolved mid-infrared (37.1 $\mu$m) image of the Fomalhaut debris disk. We use PSF fitting and subtraction to distinctly measure the flux from the unresolved component
A near-infrared interferometric survey of debris-disk stars. VI. Extending the exozodiacal light survey with CHARA/JouFLU
We report the results of high-angular-resolution observations that search for exozodiacal light in a sample of main sequence stars and sub-giants. Using the "jouvence" of the fiber linked unit for
Constraining the structure of the transition disk HD 135344B (SAO 206462) by simultaneous modeling of multiwavelength gas and dust observations
Constraining the gas and dust disk structure of transition disks, particularly in the inner dust cavity, is a crucial step towards understanding the link between them and planet formation. HD 135344B
THE SPITZER INFRARED SPECTROGRAPH DEBRIS DISK CATALOG. II. SILICATE FEATURE ANALYSIS OF UNRESOLVED TARGETS
During the Spitzer Space Telescope cryogenic mission, astronomers obtained Infrared Spectrograph (IRS) observations of hundreds of debris disk candidates that have been compiled in the Spitzer IRS
A symmetric inner cavity in the HD~141569A transitional disk
Some circumstellar disks, called transitional or hybrid disks, present characteristics of both protoplanetary disks (significant amount of gas) and debris disks (evolved structures around young
Near-infrared emission from sublimating dust in collisionally active debris disks
• Physics
• 2014
Context. Hot exozodiacal dust is thought to be responsible for excess near-infrared (NIR) emission emanating from the innermost parts of some debris disks. The origin of this dust, however, is still

Herschel images of Fomalhaut: an extrasolar Kuiper belt at the height of its dynamical activity
Context. Fomalhaut is a young (2 ± 1 × 10 8 years), nearby (7.7 pc), 2 Mstar that is suspected to harbor an infant planetary system, interspersed with one or more belts of dusty debris. Aims. We
An Icy Kuiper-Belt Around the Young Solar-Type Star HD 181327
Context. HD 181327 is a young main sequence F5/F6 V star belonging to the beta Pictoris moving group (age similar to 12 Myr). It harbors an optically thin belt of circumstellar material at radius
ASTEROID BELTS IN DEBRIS DISK TWINS: VEGA AND FOMALHAUT
Vega and Fomalhaut are similar in terms of mass, ages, and global debris disk properties; therefore, they are often referred to as debris disk twins. We present Spitzer 10-35 micrometers
The history of the Solar system's debris disc: observable properties of the Kuiper belt
The Nice model of Gomes et al. suggests that the migration of the giant planets caused a planetesimal clearing event, which led to the late heavy bombardment (LHB) at 880 Myr. Here, we investigate
51 Ophiuchus: A Possible Beta Pictoris Analog Measured with the Keck Interferometer Nuller
We present observations of the 51 Ophiuchi circumstellar disk made with the Keck interferometer operating in nulling mode at N band. We model these data simultaneously with VLTI-MIDI visibility data

The sharp inner edge and offset demonstrate the presence of planetary-mass objects orbiting Fomalhaut, demonstrating the structure of a dusty disk modified by the gravitational influence of planets.
First look at the Fomalhaut debris disk with the Spitzer Space Telescope
We present Spitzer Space Telescope early release observations of Fomalhaut, a nearby A-type star with dusty circumstellar debris. The disk is spatially resolved at 24, 70, and 160 � m using the
Circumstellar material in the Vega inner system revealed by CHARA/FLUOR
Context. Only a handful of debris disks have been imaged up to now. Due to the need for high dynamic range and high angular resolution, very little is known about the inner planetary region, where
