Dust in debris disks is generated by collisions among planetesimals. The existence of these planetesimals is a consequence of the planet formation process, but the relationship between debris disks and planets has not been clearly established. Here we analyze Spitzer/MIPS 24 and 70 μm data for 150 planet-bearing stars, and compare the incidence of debris disks around these stars with a sample of 118 stars around which planets have been searched for, but not found. Together they comprise the… Expand

Debris disks: seeing dust, thinking of planetesimals and planets
Debris disks are optically thin, almost gas-free dusty disks observed around a significant fraction of main-sequence stars older than about 10 Myr. Since the circumstellar dust is short-lived, theExpand
Debris disks as signposts of terrestrial planet formation - II. Dependence of exoplanet architectures on giant planet and disk properties
We present models for the formation of terrestrial planets, and the collisional evolution of debris disks, in planetary systems that contain multiple marginally unstable gas giants. We previousl yExpand
Planets, debris and their host metallicity correlations
Recent observations of debris discs, believed to be made up of remnant planetesimals, brought a number of surprises. Debris disc presence does not correlate with the host star's metallicity, and mayExpand
Debris disks as signposts of terrestrial planet formation
There exists strong circumstantial evidence from their eccentric orbits that most of the known extra-solar planetary systems are the survivors of violent dynamical instabilities. Here we explore theExpand
A Spitzer Infrared Spectrograph Study of Debris Disks Around Planet-host Stars
Since giant planets scatter planetesimals within a few tidal radii of their orbits, the locations of existing planetesimal belts indicate regions where giant planet formation failed in bygoneExpand
Emerging trends in metallicity and lithium properties of debris disc stars
Dwarf stars with debris discs and planets appear to be excellent laboratories to study the core accretion theory of planets formation. These systems are however, insufficiently studied. In this paperExpand
No significant correlation between radial velocity planet presence and debris disc properties
We investigate whether the tentative correlation between planets and debris discs which has been previously identified can be confirmed at high significance. We compile a sample of 201 stars withExpand
Warm debris disks candidates in transiting planets systems
We have bandmerged candidate transiting planetary systems (from the Kepler satellite) and confirmed transiting planetary systems (from the literature) with the recent Wide-field Infrared SurveyExpand
Debris disc candidates in systems with transiting planets
Debris discs are known to exist around many planet-host stars, but no debris dust has been found so far in systems with transiting planets. Using publicly available catalogues, we searched forExpand
Herschel observations of debris discs orbiting planet-hosting subgiants
Debris discs are commonly detected orbiting main-sequence stars, yet little is known regarding their fate as the star evolves to become a giant. Recent observations of radial velocity detectedExpand

Evolution of Debris Disks
Circumstellar dust exists around several hundred main sequence stars. For the youngest stars, that dust could be a remnant of the protoplanetary disk. Mostly it is inferred to be continuouslyExpand

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 withExpand

We investigate the populations of main-sequence stars within 25 pc that have debris discs and/or giant planets detected by Doppler shift. The metallicity distribution of the debris sample is a veryExpand

Main-sequence stars are commonly surrounded by debris disks, formed by cold far-IR-emitting dust that is thought to be continuously replenished by a reservoir of undetected dust-producingExpand

Debris Disks around Sun-like Stars
