We present submillimeter and mid-IR images of the circumstellar disk around the nearby F2 V star η Corvi. The disk is resolved at 850 μm with a size of ~100 AU. At 450 μm 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 (9.″3), this emission is resolved into two peaks that are within the uncertainties offset symmetrically from the star at 100 AU projected separation.

The Dust Properties of Eight Debris Disk Candidates as Determined by Submillimeter Photometry

The nature of far-infrared dust emission toward main-sequence stars, whether interstellar or circumstellar, can be deduced from submillimeter photometry. We present JCMT/SCUBA flux measurements at

SPATIALLY RESOLVED IMAGING OF THE TWO-COMPONENT η Crv DEBRIS DISK WITH HERSCHEL

We present far-infrared and submillimeter images of the η Crv debris disk system obtained with Herschel and SCUBA-2, as well as Hubble Space Telescope visible and near-infrared coronagraphic images.

MODELS OF THE η CORVI DEBRIS DISK FROM THE KECK INTERFEROMETER, SPITZER, AND HERSCHEL

Debris disks are signposts of analogs to small-body populations of the solar system, often, however, with much higher masses and dust production rates. The disk associated with the nearby star η Crv

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

Resolving the hot dust around HD69830 and η Corvi with MIDI and VISIR

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 inferred

Mid-Infrared Imaging of Two Circumstellar Disks: the cases ofHD 179218 and Epsilon Eridani.

Recently, large ground-based telescopes and the new generation of astronomical instrumentation have allowed us to examine the environments of young stellar objects with high angular resolution.

Resolved imaging of the HD 191089 debris disc

Two-thirds of the F star members of the 12 Myr old β Pictoris moving group (BPMG) show significant excess emission in the mid-infrared, several million years after the expected dispersal of the

SPITZER MID-IR SPECTRA OF DUST DEBRIS AROUND A AND LATE B TYPE STARS: ASTEROID BELT ANALOGS AND POWER-LAW DUST DISTRIBUTIONS

Using the Spitzer/Infrared Spectrograph (IRS) low-resolution modules covering wavelengths from 5 to 35 μm, we observed 52 main-sequence A and late B type stars previously seen using Spitzer/Multiband

The nature of mid-infrared excesses from hot dust around Sun-like stars

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, in

New submillimeter images of the cold dust emission around the nearby main-sequence star Fomalhaut are presented. Observations at a wavelength of 450 μm, where the telescope beam size is equivalent to

Detection of Cool Dust around the G2 V Star HD 107146

We report the detection of dust emission at submillimeter wavelengths from HD 107146, a G2 V star with an age estimated to lie between 80 and 200 Myr. The emission is resolved at 450 μm with a size

A Dust Ring around epsilon Eridani: Analog to the Young Solar System

Dust emission around the nearby star ϵ Eridani has been imaged using a new submillimeter camera (the Submillimetre Common-User Bolometer Array at the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope). At an 850 μm

SCUBA observations of dust around Lindroos stars: evidence for a substantial submillimetre disc population

We have observed 22 young stars from the Lindroos sample at 850 μm with SCUBA on the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope to search for evidence of dust discs. Stars in this sample are the less massive

The debris disc around τ Ceti: a massive analogue to the Kuiper Belt

An excess of far-infrared emission is seen towards the nearby G8 V star τ Ceti, and this has been attributed to orbiting dust particles generated in planetesimal collisions. A new 850-µm image shows
