We present the results of an unbiased asteroid survey in the mid-infrared wavelength with the Infrared Camera (IRC) onboard the Japanese infrared satellite AKARI. About 20% of the point source events recorded in the AKARI All-Sky Survey observations are not used for the IRC Point Source Catalog (IRCPSC) in its production process because of the lack of multiple detection by position. Asteroids, which are moving objects on the celestial sphere, remain in these “residual events”. We identify… Expand
A PANORAMIC VIEW OF THE ASTEROIDS IN THE INNER SOLAR SYSTEM WITH AKARI
We constructed an unbiased asteroid catalog from the mid-infrared part of the All-Sky Survey with the Infrared Camera (IRC) on board AKARI. About 20% of the point source events recorded in the IRCExpand
The Asteroid Catalog Using AKARI IRC Slow-Scan Observations
We present an asteroidal catalog from the mid-infrared wavelength region using the slow-scan observation mode obtained by the Infrared Camera (IRC) on-board the Japanese infrared satellite AKARI. AnExpand
The AKARI IRC asteroid flux catalogue: updated diameters and albedos
The AKARI IRC All-sky survey provided more than twenty thousand thermal infrared observations of over five thousand asteroids. Diameters and albedos were obtained by fitting an empirically calibratedExpand

Follow-up observations for the Asteroid Catalog using AKARI Spectroscopic Observations
In the 1-2.5 micron range, spectroscopic observations are made on the AcuA-spec asteroids, whose spectra were obtained in a continuous covered mode between 2.5-5.0 micron by AKARI. Based on theExpand
AKARI/IRC Near-Infrared Asteroid Spectroscopic Survey: AcuA-spec.
Knowledge of water in the solar system is important for understanding of a wide range of evolutionary processes and the thermal history of the solar system. To explore the existence of water in theExpand
An Investigation of the Ranges of Validity of Asteroid Thermal Models for Near-Earth Asteroid Observations
The majority of known asteroid diameters are derived from thermal-infrared observations. Diameters are derived using asteroid thermal models that approximate their surface temperature distributionsExpand
Photometry and models of selected main belt asteroids - IX. Introducing interactive service for asteroid models (ISAM)
Context. The shapes and spin states of asteroids observed with photometric techniques can be reconstructed using the lightcurve inversion method. The resultant models can then be confirmed orExpand
