Context. Circumstellar disks are expected to evolve quickly in massive young clusters harboring many OB-type stars. Two processes have been proposed to drive the disk evolution in such cruel environments: (1) gravitational interaction between circumstellar disks and nearby passing stars (stellar encounters); and (2) photoevaporation by UV photons from massive stars. The relative importance of both mechanisms is not well understood. Studies of massive young star clusters can provide… 
Protoplanetary disk lifetimes vs stellar mass and possible implications for giant planet populations
We study the dependence of protoplanetary disk evolution on stellar mass using a large sample of young stellar objects in nearby young star-forming regions. We update the protoplanetary disk
Disk Dispersal: Theoretical Understanding and Observational Constraints
Protoplanetary disks dissipate rapidly after the central star forms, on time-scales comparable to those inferred for planet formation. In order to allow the formation of planets, disks must survive
Photoevaporation of protoplanetary disks by Far-UV photons arising from neighbouring massive stars: observation of proplyds and modelling
Protoplanetary disks are found around young stars, and represent the embryonic stage of planetary systems. At different phases of their evolution, disks may undergo substantial mass-loss by
External photoevaporation of circumstellar discs constrains the time-scale for planet formation
Planet-forming circumstellar discs are a fundamental part of the star formation process. Since stars form in a hierarchical fashion in groups of up to hundreds or thousands, the UV radiation
External Photoevaporation of Protoplanetary Disks: Does Location Matter?
Many theoretical studies have shown that external photoevaporation from massive stars can severely truncate, or destroy altogether, the gaseous protoplanetary disks around young stars. In tandem,
Face-on accretion onto a protoplanetary disc
Globular clusters (GCs) are known to harbor multiple stellar populations. To explain these observations Bastian et al. suggested a scenario in which a second population is formed by the accretion of
Dust Evolution and the Formation of Planetesimals
The solid content of circumstellar disks is inherited from the interstellar medium: dust particles of at most a micrometer in size. Protoplanetary disks are the environment where these dust grains
Young stars in epsilon Chamaleontis and their disks: disk evolution in sparse associations
Context. The nearby young stellar associationǫ Cha has an estimated age of 3‐5 Myr, making it an ideal laboratory to study the disk dissipation process and provide empirical constraints on t he
Disc truncation in embedded star clusters: Dynamical encounters versus face-on accretion
Observations indicate that the dispersal of protoplanetary discs in star clusters occurs on time scales of about 5 Myr. Several processes are thought to be responsible for this disc dispersal. Here
Bridging the Gap between Protoplanetary and Debris Disks: Separate Evolution of Millimeter and Micrometer-sized Dust
The connection between the nature of a protoplanetary disk and that of a debris disk is not well understood. Dust evolution, planet formation, and disk dissipation likely play a role in the processes


Star and Protoplanetary Disk Properties in Orion's Suburbs
Context. Knowledge of the evolution of circumstellar accretion disks is pivotal to our understanding of star and planet formation; and yet despite intensive theoretical and observational studies, the
Toward Understanding Massive Star Formation
AbstractAlthough fundamental for astrophysics, the processes that produce massive stars are not well understood. Large distances, high extinction, and short timescales of critical evolutionary phases
Correlation between the spatial distribution of circumstellar disks and massive stars in the open cluster NGC 6611 ⋆ . Compiled catalog and cluster parameters.
Context. The observation of young stars with circumstellar disks suggests that the disks are dissipated, starting from the inner region, by the radiation of the central star and eventually by the
Evidence for Early Circumstellar Disk Evolution in NGC 2068/71
We study the disk and accretion properties of young stars in the NGC 2068 and NGC 2071 clusters. Using low-resolution optical spectra, we define a membership sample and determine an age for the
The Cepheus B (Cep B) molecular cloud and a portion of the nearby Cep OB3b OB association, one of the most active regions of star formation within 1 kpc, have been observed with the Infrared Array
The fate of discs around massive stars in young clusters
Aims. To understand whether there is a difference in the dispersion of discs around stars in high-density young stellar clusters like the Orion Nebula Cluster (ONC) according to the mass of the star.
A Spitzer view of protoplanetary disks in the γ velorum cluster
We present new Spitzer Space Telescope observations of stars in the young (~5 Myr)γ Velorum stellar cluster. Combining optical and 2MASS photometry, we have selected 579 stars as candidate members of
The photoevaporation of discs around young stars in massive clusters
We present models in which the photoevaporation of discs around young stars by an external ultraviolet source (as computed by Adams et al.) is coupled with the internal viscous evolution of the
Expanding upon the Infrared Array Camera (IRAC) survey from Dahm & Hillenbrand, we describe Spitzer IRAC and Multiband Imaging Photometer for Spitzer observations of the populous, 5 Myr old open
Photoevaporation of Protostellar Disks. V. Circumstellar Disks under the Influence of Both Extreme-Ultraviolet and Far-Ultraviolet Radiation
The evolution and appearance of protostellar disks can be significantly altered by their UV environment. We investigate numerically the photoevaporation of protostellar disks under the influence of
