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 with 42 already published observations of planet-bearing stars, we find that 14 of the 146 systems have IR excess at 24 and/or 70 μm. Only one star, HD 69830, has IR excess exclusively at 24 μm, indicative of warm dust in the inner system analogous to that produced by collisions in the solar system's…

A Direct Imaging Survey of Spitzer-detected Debris Disks: Occurrence of Giant Planets in Dusty Systems
We describe a joint high-contrast imaging survey for planets at the Keck and Very Large Telescope of the last large sample of debris disks identified by the Spitzer Space Telescope. No new substellar
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 for
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 Survey
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 bygone
Faint warm debris disks around nearby bright stars explored by AKARI and IRSF
Context: Debris disks are important observational clues for understanding planetary-system formation process. In particular, faint warm debris disks may be related to late planet formation near 1 AU.
HERSCHEL OBSERVATIONS AND UPDATED SPECTRAL ENERGY DISTRIBUTIONS OF FIVE SUNLIKE STARS WITH DEBRIS DISKS
Observations from the Herschel Space Observatory have more than doubled the number of wide debris disks orbiting Sunlike stars to include over 30 systems with R > 100 AU. Here we present new Herschel
Interpreting the extended emission around three nearby debris disc host stars
Cool debris discs are a relic of the planetesimal formation process around their host star, analogous to the solar system's Edgeworth-Kuiper belt. As such, they can be used as a proxy to probe the
The debris disk candidates: eleven 24 μm excess stars in the Spitzer SWIRE fields
We present the optical to mid-infrared SEDs of 11 debris disk candidates from Spitzer SWIRE fields. All the candidates are selected from SWIRE 24 μm sources matched with both the SDSS star catalog
DEBRIS DISKS IN KEPLER EXOPLANET SYSTEMS
The Kepler mission recently identified 997 systems hosting candidate extrasolar planets, many of which are super-Earths. Realizing these planetary systems are candidates to host extrasolar asteroid
Debris discs and comet populations around Sun-like stars: the Solar system in context
Numerous nearby FGK dwarfs possess discs of debris generated by collisions among comets. Here, we fit the levels of dusty excess observed by Spitzer at 70 μm and show that they form a rather smooth

PLANETS AND INFRARED EXCESSES: PRELIMINARY RESULTS FROM A SPITZER MIPS SURVEY OF SOLAR-TYPE STARS
As part of a large Spitzer MIPS Guaranteed Time Observation program, we have searched for infrared excesses due to debris disks toward 26 FGK field stars known from radial velocity (RV) studies to
New Debris Disks around Nearby Main-Sequence Stars: Impact on the Direct Detection of Planets
Using the MIPS instrument on Spitzer, we have searched for infrared excesses around a sample of 82 stars, mostly F, G, and K main-sequence field stars, along with a small number of nearby M stars.
Are Debris Disks and Massive Planets Correlated
Using data from the Spitzer Space Telescope Legacy Science Program Formation and Evolution of Planetary Systems (FEPS), we have searched for debris disks around nine FGK stars (2-10 Gyr), known from

We report the results of a spectroscopic search for debris disks surrounding 41 nearby solar-type stars, including eight planet-bearing stars, using the Infrared Spectrometer (IRS) on the Spitzer
Debris Disks around Sun-like Stars
We have observed nearly 200 FGK stars at 24 and 70 ?m with the Spitzer Space Telescope. We identify excess infrared emission, including a number of cases where the observed flux is more than 10 times
Spitzer far-infrared detections of cold circumstellar disks

A search for debris discs around stars with giant planets
Eight nearby stars with known giant planets have been searched for thermal emission in the submillimetre arising from dust debris. The null results imply quantities of dust typically less than 0.02
