We have observed nearly 200 FGK stars at 24 and 70 ?m with the Spitzer Space Telescope. We identify excess infrared emission, including a number of cases where the observed flux is more than 10 times brighter than the predicted photospheric flux, and interpret these signatures as evidence of debris disks in those systems. We combine this sample of FGK stars with similar published results to produce a sample of more than 350 main sequence AFGKM stars. The incidence of debris disks is -->4.2+ 2.0…

THE DECAY OF DEBRIS DISKS AROUND SOLAR-TYPE STARS
• Physics
• 2014
We present a Spitzer MIPS study of the decay of debris disk excesses at 24 and 70 ?m for 255 stars of types F4-K2. We have used multiple tests, including consistency between chromospheric and X-ray
Debris Disks around Solar-type Stars: Observations of the Pleiades with the Spitzer Space Telescope
• Physics
• 2010
We present Spitzer MIPS observations at 24 μm of 37 solar-type stars in the Pleiades and combine them with previous observations to obtain a sample of 71 stars. We report that 23 stars, or 32% ±
PLANETS AND DEBRIS DISKS: RESULTS FROM A SPITZER/MIPS SEARCH FOR INFRARED EXCESS
Using the MIPS camera on the Spitzer Space Telescope, we have searched for debris disks around 104 stars known from radial velocity studies to have one or more planets. Combining this new data with
Search for cold debris disks around M-dwarfs. II
Although 70% of the stars in the Galaxy are M-dwarfs, thermal emission searches for cold debris disks have been conducted mostly for A-type and solar-type stars. We report on new λ = 1.2 mm continuum

• Physics
• 2012
We have conducted a study of debris disks around F stars in order to explore correlations between rotation, stellar winds, and circumstellar disks. We obtained new 24 μm photometry from the Multiband
The Incidence of Debris Disks at 24 μm and 670 Myr
• Physics

We use Spitzer Space Telescope 24 μm data to search for debris disks among 122 AFGKM stars from the ~670 Myr clusters Hyades, Coma Ber, and Praesepe, utilizing a number of advances in data reduction
Survey of Nearby FGK Stars at 160 μm with Spitzer
• Physics
• 2009
The Spitzer Space Telescope has advanced debris disk science tremendously with a wealth of information on debris disks around nearby A, F, G, K, and M stars at 24 and 70 μm with the MIPS photometer
Debris discs around nearby solar analogues
• Physics
• 2009
An unbiased search for debris discs around nearby Sun-like stars is reported. 13 G-dwarfs at 12–15 parsec distance were searched at 850 μm wavelength, and a disc is confirmed around HD 30495. The
