We have obtained subarcsecond mid-IR images of a sample of debris disks within 100 pc. For our sample of 19 A-type debris disk candidates chosen for their IR excess, we have resolved, for the first time, five sources plus the previously resolved disk around HD 141569. Two other sources in our sample have been ruled out as debris disks since the time of sample selection. Three of the six resolved sources have inferred radii of 1-4 AU (HD 38678, HD 71155, and HD 181869), and one source has an… Expand
Resolved debris discs around A stars in the Herschel DEBRIS survey
The majority of debris discs discovered so far have only been detected through infrared excess emission above stellar photospheres. While disc properties can be inferred from unresolved photometryExpand
Detection of scattered light from the hot dust in HD 172555
Context. Debris disks or belts are important signposts for the presence of colliding planetesimals and, therefore, for ongoing planet formation and evolution processes in young planetary systems.Expand
Mid-Infrared Imaging of Two Circumstellar Disks: the cases ofHD 179218 and Epsilon Eridani.
Recently, large ground-based telescopes and the new generation of astronomical instrumentation have allowed us to examine the environments of young stellar objects with high angular resolution.Expand
Multiwavelength modelling of the β Leo debris disc: one, two or three planetesimal populations?
In this paper we present a model of the β Leo debris disc, with an emphasis on modelling the resolved Photodetector Array Camera and Spectrometer (PACS) images obtained as a part of the Herschel keyExpand
Resolved Gas Interior to the Dust Rings of the HD 141569 Disk
The disk around HD 141569 is one of a handful of systems whose weak infrared emission is consistent with a debris disk, but still has a significant reservoir of gas. Here we report spatially resolvedExpand
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 youngExpand
Resolving the terrestrial planet forming regions of HD 113766 and HD 172555 with MIDI
We present new MIDI interferometric and VISIR spectroscopic observations of HD 113766 and HD 172555. Additionally, we present VISIR 11-m and 18-m imaging observations of HD 113766. These sourcesExpand
A CO Survey In Planet-Forming Disks: Characterizing The Gas Content In The Epoch Of Planet Formation
We carried out a 12CO(3-2) survey of 52 southern stars with a wide range of IR excesses (L IR/L *) using the single-dish telescopes APEX and ASTE. The main aims were (1) to characterize the evolutionExpand
Do two-temperature debris discs have multiple belts?
We present a study of debris disks whose spectra are well modelled by dust emission at two different temperatures. These disks are typically assumed to be a sign of multiple belts, which in only aExpand
Resolve partially the inner disk for Epsilon Eridani
We present mid-infrared imaging observations of the debris disk around one of the main sequence star Epsilon Eridani in the Q-band at (20.5 µm) and (17.6 µm). The dust that produces emission inExpand
