  journal={The Astrophysical Journal},
We model the infrared (IR) emission from the ringlike dust disk around the main-sequence (MS) star Eridani, a young analog to our solar system, in terms of a porous dust model previously developed for the extended wedge-shaped disk around the MS star β Pictoris and the sharply truncated ringlike disks around the Herbig Ae/Be stars HR 4796A and HD 141569A. It is shown that the porous dust model with a porosity of ~90% is also successful in reproducing the IR to submillimeter dust emission…

SIMBA's view of the epsilon Eri disk
We present the first observational confirmation for an extended circumstellar dust disk around epsilon Eri. The observations were obtained with the bolometer array SIMBA at the 15 m radio telescope
Cometary grains in the HD 32297 debris disk
HD 32297 is a young A-type star with a bright edge-on debris disk. The dust thermal emission spectral energy distribution and scattered starlight spectrum are simultaneously modeled in terms of
Hubble and Spitzer Space Telescope Observations of the Debris Disk around the nearby K Dwarf HD 92945
We present the first resolved images of the debris disk around the nearby K dwarf HD 92945, obtained with the Hubble Space Telescope's (HST 's) Advanced Camera for Surveys. Our F606W (Broad V) and
The Dust and Gas Around β Pictoris
We have obtained Spitzer IRS 5.5-35 ?m spectroscopy of the debris disk around ? Pictoris. In addition to the 10 ?m silicate emission feature originally observed from the ground, we also detect the
Limits on the optical brightness of the ∈ eridani dust ring
The STIS CCD camera on the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) was used to take deep optical images near the K2 V main-sequence starEridani in an attempt to find an optical counterpart of the dust ring
Gas lines from the 5-Myr old optically thin disk around HD 141569A Herschel observations and modeling
Context. The gas- and dust dissipation processes in disks around young stars remain uncertain despite numerous studies. At the distance of∼ 99‐116 pc, HD141569A is one of the nearest HerbigAe stars
Dust in the solar system and in extra-solar planetary systems
Among the observed circumstellar dust envelopes a certain population, planetary debris disks, is ascribed to systems with optically thin dust disks and low gas content. These systems contain
Dust Processing and Grain Growth in Protoplanetary Disks in the Taurus-Auriga Star-Forming Region
Mid-infrared spectra of 65 T Tauri stars (TTS) taken with the Infrared Spectrograph (IRS) on board the Spitzer Space Telescope are modeled using populations of optically thin warm and cool grains to
The Dynamical Influence of a Planet at Semimajor Axis 3.4 A on the Dust around Epsilon Eridani
Precise Doppler experiments suggest that a massive (m sin i = 0.86MJ) planet orbits at semimajor axis a = 3.4 AU around Eri, a nearby star with a massive debris disk. The dynamical perturbations from
Submillimetre observations and modelling of Vega-type stars
We present new submillimetre observations of Vega-excess stars, and consistent modelling for all known Vega-excess stars with submillimetre data. Our analysis uses dust grain models with realistic


Modeling the Infrared Emission from the HR 4796A Disk
We model the spectral energy distribution (SED) from the mid-infrared to submillimeter of the ring-like disk of HR 4796A, the dustiest A-type star. We consider dust made either of coagulated but

We model the infrared (IR) emission from the double-ring disk of HD 141569A, using a porous dust model that was previously shown to be successful in reproducing the spectral energy distributions

Dusty Circumstellar Disks
▪ Abstract Dusty circumstellar disks in orbit around main-sequence stars were discovered in 1983 by the infrared astronomical satellite. It was the first time material that was not another star had
