The radii of debris disks and the sizes of their dust grains are important tracers of the planetesimal formation mechanisms and physical processes operating in these systems. Here we use a representative sample of 34 debris disks resolved in various Herschel Space Observatory (Herschel is an ESA space observatory with science instruments provided by European-led Principal Investigator consortia and with important participation from NASA) programs to constrain the disk radii and the size… 
CONSTRAINTS ON PLANETESIMAL COLLISION MODELS IN DEBRIS DISKS
Observations of debris disks offer a window into the physical and dynamical properties of planetesimals in extrasolar systems through the size distribution of dust grains. In particular, the
What Sets the Radial Locations of Warm Debris Disks?
The architectures of debris disks encode the history of planet formation in these systems. Studies of debris disks via their spectral energy distributions (SEDs) have found infrared excesses arising
The Mass of Stirring Bodies in the AU Mic Debris Disk Inferred from Resolved Vertical Structure
The vertical distribution of dust in debris disks is sensitive to the number and size of large planetesimals dynamically stirring the disk, and is therefore well-suited for constraining the
DEBRIS DISKS IN THE SCORPIUS–CENTAURUS OB ASSOCIATION RESOLVED BY ALMA
We present a CO(2-1) and 1240 μm continuum survey of 23 debris disks with spectral types B9-G1, observed at an angular resolution of 0.″5–1″ with the Atacama Large Millimeter/Submillimeter Array
Debris Disks: Probing Planet Formation
Debris disks are the dust disks found around ~20% of nearby main sequence stars in far-IR surveys. They can be considered as descendants of protoplanetary disks or components of planetary systems,
Molecular Gas in Debris Disks around Young A-type Stars
According to the current paradigm of circumstellar disk evolution, gas-rich primordial disks evolve into gas-poor debris disks that are composed of second-generation dust. To explore the transition
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 search for trends in spatially resolved debris discs at far-infrared wavelengths
Debris discs around main-sequence stars are belts of planetesimals – asteroids and comets – formed in the protoplanetary discs around young stars. Planetesimals comprise both the building blocks of
Dust Production Rates in the Fomalhaut Debris Disk from SOFIA/FORCAST Mid-infrared Imaging
We present the first spatially resolved mid-infrared (37.1 μm) image of the Fomalhaut debris disk. We use point spread function fitting and subtraction to distinctly measure the flux from the
Azimuthal asymmetries in the debris disk around HD 61005: A massive collision of planetesimals?
Context. Debris disks off er valuable insights into the latest stages of circumstellar disk evolution, and can possibly help us to trace the outcomes of planetary formation processes. In the age

Debris disks around main-sequence stars are believed to derive from planetesimal populations that have accreted at early epochs and survived possible planet formation processes. While debris disks

Debris disks have been found primarily around intermediate and solar mass stars (spectral types A-K) but rarely around low mass M-type stars. We have spatially resolved a debris disk around the
Long-Term Collisional Evolution of Debris Disks
IR surveys indicate that the dust content in debris disks gradually declines with stellar age. We simulated the long-term collisional depletion of debris disks around solar-type (G2 V) stars with our

Evolution of Debris Disks
Circumstellar dust exists around several hundred main sequence stars. For the youngest stars, that dust could be a remnant of the protoplanetary disk. Mostly it is inferred to be continuously
