EX Lup is the prototype of the EXor class of eruptive young stars. These objects show optical outbursts which are thought to be related to runaway accretion onto the star. In a previous study we observed in situ crystal formation in the disk of EX Lup during its latest outburst in 2008, making the object an ideal laboratory to investigate circumstellar crystal formation and transport. This outburst was monitored by a campaign of ground-based and Spitzer Space Telescope observations. Here we… Expand

Spectral Evolution and Radial Dust Transport in the Prototype Young Eruptive System EX Lup
EX Lup is the prototype of a class of pre-main sequence eruptive stars defined by their repetitive outbursts lasting several months. In 2008 January-September EX Lup underwent its historicallyExpand

Abstract While the Sun is nowadays a quiet and well-balanced star, in its first few million years it might have been often out of temper, like those young low-mass stars which episodically undergoExpand
Chemical Signatures of the FU Ori Outbursts
The FU Ori-type young stellar objects are characterized by a sudden increase in luminosity by 1$-$2 orders of magnitude, followed by slow return to the pre-outburst state on timescales ofExpand
Radial velocity variations in the young eruptive star EX Lupi
Context. EX Lup-type objects (EXors) are low-mass pre-main sequence objects characterized by optical and near-infrared outbursts attributed to highly enhanced accretion from the circumstellar diskExpand
Dynamics during outburst: VLTI observations of the young eruptive star V1647 Orionis during its 2003-2006 outburst
Context. It is hypothesized that low-mass young stellar objects undergo eruptive phases during their early evolution. These eruptions are thought to be caused by highly increased mass accretion fromExpand
The Circumstellar Disk and Asymmetric Outflow of the EX Lup Outburst System

We present a comparison of archival Spitzer spectra of the strongly variable T Tauri EX Lupi, observed before and during its 2008 outburst. We analyze the mid-infrared emission from gas-phaseExpand

We investigate new and archival 3-5 $\mu$m high resolution ($\sim3$ km s$^{-1}$) spectroscopy of molecular gas in the inner disk of the young solar-mass star EX Lupi, taken during and after theExpand
Exploring the circumstellar environment of the young eruptive star V2492 Cygni
Context. V2492 Cyg is a young eruptive star that went into outburst in 2010. The near-infrared color changes observed since the outburst peak suggest that the source belongs to a newly definedExpand

Episodic formation of cometary material in the outburst of a young Sun-like star
Mid-infrared features in the outburst spectrum of the young Sun-like star EX Lupi that were not present in quiescence are reported and it is concluded that the crystals were produced through thermal annealing in the surface layer of the inner disk by heat from the outburst, a process that has hitherto not been considered.
