Millimetre continuum observations of debris discs can provide insights into the physical and dynamical properties of the unseen planetesimals that these discs host. The material properties and collisional models of planetesimals leave their signature on the grain size distribution, which can be traced through the millimetre spectral index. We present 8.8 mm observations of the debris discs HD 48370, CPD-72 2713, HD 131488, and HD 32297 using theAustralian Telescope Compact Array (ATCA) as part… Expand

On the absorption and scattering of light
When a beam of light passes through a material medium it suffers gradual extinction, mainly through molecular scattering, but partly also through conversion into heat. The two processes should beExpand
