The Z CMa binary is understood to undergo both FU Orionis (FUOR) and EX Orionis (EXOR) type outbursts. While the SE component has been spectroscopically classified as an FUOR, the NW component, a Herbig Be star, is the source of the EXOR outbursts. The system has been identified as the source of a large outflow; however, previous studies have failed to identify the driver. Here, we present adaptive optics assisted [Fe ii] spectro-images which reveal for the first time the presence of two small… 

The 2008-2009 outburst of the young binary system Z CMa unraveled by interferometry with high spectral resolution

Z CMa is a young binary system consisting of an Herbig primary and a FU Ori companion. Both components seem to be surrounded by active accretion disks and a jet was associated to the Herbig B0. In

The 2008 outburst in the Young Stellar System Z CMa. III - Multi-epoch high-angular resolution images and spectra of the components in near-infrared

Z CMa is a complex pre-main sequence binary with a current separation of 100 mas, known to consist of an FU Orionis star (SE component) and an embedded Herbig Be star (NW component). Immediately when

Sub-0.1" optical imaging of the Z CMa jets with SPHERE/ZIMPOL

Crucial information on the mass accretion-ejection in young stars can be obtained from high spatial resolution images of jets in sources with recurrent accretion outbursts. Using the SPHERE/ZIMPOL

Spectro-astrometry of V1515 Cygni

Context. FU Orionis objects are a class of young stars with important bursts in luminosity and which show evidence of accretion and ejection activity. It is generally accepted that they are su

Relating jet structure to photometric variability: the Herbig Ae star HD 163296

Herbig Ae/Be stars are intermediate-mass pre-main sequence stars surrounded by circumstellar dust disks. Some are observed to produce jets, whose appearance as a sequence of shock fronts (knots)

The inner environment of Z Canis Majoris: High-contrast imaging polarimetry with NaCo

Context. Z CMa is a binary composed of an embedded Herbig Be and an FU Ori class star separated by ∼100 au. Observational evidence indicates a complex environment in which each star has a

Interferometric view of the circumstellar envelopes of northern FU Orionis-type stars

FU Orionis-type objects are young, low-mass stars with large outbursts in visible light that last for several years or decades. They are thought to represent an evolutionary phase during the life of

SPATIALLY RESOLVED OBSERVATIONS OF THE BIPOLAR OPTICAL OUTFLOW FROM THE BROWN DWARF 2MASS J12073347−3932540

Studies of brown dwarf (BD) outflows provide information pertinent to questions on BD formation, as well as allowing outflow mechanisms to be investigated at the lowest masses. Here new observations

A MUSE spectro-imaging study of the Th 28 jet: Precession in the inner jet

Context. Th 28 is a Classical T Tauri star in the Lupus 3 cloud that drives an extended bipolar jet. Previous studies of the inner jet identified signatures of rotation around the outflow axis, a key

LBT/LUCIFER near-infrared spectroscopy of PV Cephei - An outbursting young stellar object with an asymmetric jet

Context. Young stellar objects (YSOs) occasionally experience enhanced accretion events, the nature of which is still poorly understood. The discovery of various embedded outbursting YSOs has

Over the last number of years, spectroscopic studies have strongly supported the assertion that protostellar accretion and outflow activity persist to the lowest masses. Indeed, previous to this

We present optical and near-infrared images and spectroscopy together with submillimetre images of the candidate FU Orionis pre-main-sequence star PP 13S. A comparison of historical plates with our

Precession of Collimated Outflows from Young Stellar Objects

We consider several protostellar systems in which either a precessing jet or at least two misaligned jets have been observed. We assume that the precession of jets is caused by tidal interactions in
