We present a synergic study of protoplanetary disks to investigate links between inner disk gas molecules and the large-scale migration of solid pebbles. The sample includes 63 disks where two types of measurements are available: i) spatially-resolved disk images revealing the radial distribution of disk pebbles (mm-cm dust grains), from millimeter observations with ALMA or the SMA, and ii) infrared molecular emission spectra as observed with Spitzer. The line flux ratios of H2O with HCN, C2H2… Expand

Drifting inwards in protoplanetary discs
In previous laboratory experiments, we measured the temperature dependence of sticking forces between micrometer grains of chondritic composition. The data showed a decrease in surface energy by aExpand
Dry or water world? How the water contents of inner sub-Neptunes constrain giant planet formation and the location of the water ice line
In the pebble accretion scenario, the pebbles that form planets drift inward from the outer disk regions, carrying water ice with them. At the water ice line, the water ice on the inward driftingExpand
Gas Evolution in Inner Disk Cavities from a Synergic Analysis of IR-CO and UV-H2 Spectra
We are conducting a multi-wavelength analysis of high-resolution molecular spectra that probe the evolution of gas in the inner 10 au in protoplanetary disks. A sample of 15 disks has been combinedExpand
Observing Carbon and Oxygen Carriers in Protoplanetary Disks at Mid-infrared Wavelengths
Infrared observations probe the warm gas in the inner regions of planet-forming disks around young Sun-like T Tauri stars. In these systems, H2O, OH, CO, CO2, C2H2, and HCN have been widely observed.Expand
On the secular evolution of the ratio between gas and dust radii in protoplanetary discs
A key problem in protoplanetary disc evolution is understanding the efficiency of dust radial drift. This process makes the observed dust disc sizes shrink on relatively short timescales, implyingExpand
Water in star-forming regions: physics and chemistry from clouds to disks as probed by Herschel spectroscopy
(abridged) Data and results from the WISH key program are summarized, designed to provide a legacy data set to address its physics and chemistry. WISH targeted ~80 sources along the two axes ofExpand


Physical properties of dusty protoplanetary disks in Lupus: evidence for viscous evolution?
The formation of planets strongly depends on the total amount as well as on the spatial distribution of solids in protoplanetary disks. Thanks to the improvements in resolution and sensitivityExpand
The HCN-Water Ratio in the Planet Formation Region of Disks
We find a trend between the mid-infrared HCN/H2O flux ratio and submillimeter disk mass among T Tauri stars in Taurus. While it may seem puzzling that the molecular emission properties of the innerExpand
The molecular composition of the planet-forming regions of protoplanetary disks across the luminosity regime
(Abridged) Near- to mid-IR observations of protoplanetary disks show that the inner regions (<10AU) are rich in small organic volatiles (e.g., C2H2 and HCN). Trends in the data suggest that disksExpand
Efficiency of radial transport of ices in protoplanetary disks probed with infrared observations : the case of CO2
The efficiency of radial transport of icy solid material from outer disk to the inner disk is currently unconstrained. Efficient radial transport of icy dust grains could significantly alter theExpand
Constraining the radial drift of millimeter-sized grains in the protoplanetary disks in Lupus
Recent ALMA surveys of protoplanetary disks have shown that for most disks the extent of the gas emission is greater than the extent of the thermal emission of the millimeter-sized dust. Both lineExpand
Diverse protoplanetary disk morphology produced by a Jupiter-mass planet.
Combining hydrodynamic planet-disk interaction simulations with dust evolution models, we show that protoplanetary disks having a giant planet can reveal diverse morphology in (sub-)millimeterExpand
The chemistry of planet-forming regions is not interstellar.
It is argued that inner disk chemistry is, as expected, fundamentally different from prestellar chemistry, and the clearest discriminant may be the concentration of CO2, which is extremely low in disks, but one of the most abundant constituents of dense clouds and protostellar envelopes. Expand
Depletion of molecular gas by an accretion outburst in a protoplanetary disk
We investigate new and archival 3-5 $\mu$m high resolution ($\sim3$ km s$^{-1}$) spectroscopy of molecular gas in the inner disk of the young solar-mass star EX Lupi, taken during and after theExpand
We present a new velocity-resolved survey of 2.9 μm spectra of hot H_2O and OH gas emission from protoplanetary disks, obtained with the Cryogenic Infrared Echelle Spectrometer at the VLT (R ~Expand
Transport of CO in Protoplanetary Disks: Consequences of Pebble Formation, Settling, and Radial Drift
Current models of (exo)planet formation often rely on a large influx of so-called `pebbles' from the outer disk into the planet formation region. In this paper, we investigate how the formation ofExpand
