We present continuum observations at λ = 1.3 and 2.7 mm using the Combined Array for Research in Millimeter-wave Astronomy toward six protoplanetary disks in the Taurus molecular cloud: CI Tau, DL Tau, DO Tau, FT Tau, Haro 6-13, and HL Tau. We constrain physical properties of the disks with Bayesian inference using two disk models: the flared power-law disk model and flared accretion disk model. Comparing the physical properties, we find that the more extended disks are less flared and that the… 

High-resolution Millimeter Imaging of the CI Tau Protoplanetary Disk: A Massive Ensemble of Protoplanets from 0.1 to 100 au

We present high-resolution millimeter continuum imaging of the disk surrounding the young star CI Tau, a system hosting the first hot Jupiter candidate in a protoplanetary disk system. The system has

Protoplanetary Disk Masses from Radiative Transfer Modeling: A Case Study in Taurus

Measuring the masses of protoplanetary disks is crucial for understanding their planet-forming potential. Typically, dust masses are derived from (sub-)millimeter flux density measurements plus

GRAIN GROWTH IN THE CIRCUMSTELLAR DISKS OF THE YOUNG STARS CY Tau AND DoAr 25

We present new results from the Disks@EVLA program for two young stars: CY Tau and DoAr 25. We trace continuum emission arising from their circusmtellar disks from spatially resolved observations,

Dust Polarization in Four Protoplanetary Disks at 3 mm: Further Evidence of Multiple Origins

We present polarimetric observations of four Class II protoplanetary disks (DG Tau, Haro 6–13, RY Tau, and MWC 480) taken with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) at 3 mm. The

Molecular line emission from planet-forming disks with ALMA

The physical and chemical conditions in the protoplanetary disk set the initial conditions for planet formation. Constraining the properties of disks is of key importance for understanding how

Multiwavelength analysis for interferometric (sub-)mm observations of protoplanetary disks - Radial constraints on the dust properties and the disk structure

Context. The growth of dust grains from sub-mu m to mm and cm sizes is the first step towards the formation of planetesimals. Theoretical models of grain growth predict that dust properties change as

Inclination-induced polarization of scattered millimetre radiation from protoplanetary discs: the case of HL Tau

Spatially resolved polarized millimeter/submillimeter emission has been observed in the disk of HL Tau and two other young stellar objects. It is usually interpreted as coming from magnetically

Gaps and Rings in an ALMA Survey of Disks in the Taurus Star-forming Region

Rings are the most frequently revealed substructure in Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) dust observations of protoplanetary disks, but their origin is still hotly debated. In this

ALMA Observations of the Protostellar Disk around the VeLLO IRAS 16253–2429

We present ALMA long-baseline observations toward the Class 0 protostar IRAS 16253–2429 (hereafter IRAS 16253) with a resolution down to 0.″12 (∼15 au). The 1.3 mm dust continuum emission has a

Architecture of Three-planet Systems Predicted from the Observed Protoplanetary Disk of HL Tau

A number of protoplanetary disks observed with ALMA potentially provide direct examples of initial conditions for planetary systems. In particular, the HL Tau disk has been intensively studied, and

Constraints on the radial distribution of the dust properties in the CQ Tauri protoplanetary disk

Context. Grain growth in protoplanetary disks is the first step towards the formation of the rocky cores of planets. Models predict that grains grow, migrate, and fragment in the disk and predict
