We present submillimeter and mid-IR images of the circumstellar disk around the nearby F2 V star ? Corvi. The disk is resolved at 850 ?m with a size of ~100 AU. At 450 ?m the emission is found to be extended at all position angles, with significant elongation along a position angle of 130? ? 10?; at the highest resolution (93), this emission is resolved into two peaks that are within the uncertainties offset symmetrically from the star at 100 AU projected separation. Modeling the appearance of… Expand

We use the Spitzer Space Telescope to search for infrared excess at 24, 70, and 160 μm due to debris disks around a sample of 45 FGK-type members of the Hyades. We supplement our observations withExpand
Resolving the hot dust around HD69830 and η Corvi with MIDI and VISIR
• Physics
• 2009
Aims. Most of the known debris discs exhibit cool dust in regions analogous to the Edgeworth-Kuiper Belt. However, a rare subset show hot excess from within a few AU, which moreover is often inferredExpand
The nature of mid-infrared excesses from hot dust around Sun-like stars
• Physics
• 2008
Aims. Studies of the debris disk phenomenon have shown that most systems are analogous to the Edgeworth-Kuiper Belt (EKB). However a rare subset of sun-like stars possess dust which lies, inExpand
