Stellar Mass Dependent Disk Dispersal


We use published optical spectral and IR excess data from nine young clusters and associations to study the stellar mass dependent dispersal of circumstellar disks. All clusters older than ∼3Myr show a decrease in disk fraction with increasing stellar mass for Solar to higher mass stars. This result is significant at about the 1σ level in each cluster.
