We have carried out observations at millimeter and centimeter wavelengths toward VV Ser using the Plateau de Bure Interferometer and the Very Large Array. This allows us to compute the SED from near infrared to centimeter wavelengths. The modeling of the full SED has provided insight into the dust properties and a more accurate value of the disk mass. The mass of dust in the disk around VV Ser is found to be about 4 × 10−5 M☉, i.e., 400 times larger than previous estimates. Moreover, the SED… 

Circumstellar disks around Herbig Be stars

Aims. Our goal is to investigate the properties of the circumstellar disks around intermediate mass stars to determine their occurrence, lifetime and evolution. Methods. We completed a search for

The circumstellar disc in the Bok globule CB 26: Multi-wavelength observations and modelling of the dust disc and envelope

Circumstellar discs are expected to be the nursery of planets. Grain growth within such discs is the first step in the planet formation process. The Bok globule CB 26 harbours such a young disc. We

Modeling of Spectroscopic and Interferometric Observations of the Herbig Star VV Ser with Hybrid Models

Abstract Modeling of hydrogen emission lines is a powerful tool to study physical processes in the nearest vicinity of young stars because spectral lines carry information on the kinematics and

Massive young disks around Herbig Ae stars

Context. Herbig Ae stars (HAe) are the precursors of Vega-type systems, hence crucial objects in planet formation studies. Thus far, only a few disks associated with HAe stars have been studied using

Large grains in discs around young stars: ATCA observations of WW Chamaeleontis, RU Lupi and CS Chamaeleontis

Context. Grains in discs around young stars grow from interstellar submicron sizes to planetesimals, up to thousands of kilometres in size, over the course of several Myr. Thermal emission of large


We carried out a 12CO(3–2) survey of 52 southern stars with a wide range of IR excesses (LIR/L*) using the single-dish telescopes APEX and ASTE. The main aims were (1) to characterize the evolution

Searching for a link between the magnetic nature and other observed properties of Herbig Ae/Be stars

Abstract We present the results of a new magnetic field survey of Herbig Ae/Be and A debris disk stars. They are used to determine whether magnetic field properties in these stars are correlated with

Dissecting an intermediate-mass protostar. Chemical differentiation in IC 1396 N

Aims: We aim to unveil the physical conditions and structure of the intermediate mass (IM) protostar IRAS 21391+5802 (IC 1396 N) on scales of 1000 AU. Methods: We carried out high angular resolution

A novel bi-functional metal/solid acid catalyst for the direct reductive amination of nitroarenes synthesized on a resistant mesoporous carbon (CMK-8) support

A metal–acid bi-functional catalyst based on nickel nanoparticles and polystyrene sulfonic acid chains anchored on ordered mesoporous carbon CMK-8 was synthesized through a simple method. This



Modeling Spitzer Observations of VV Ser. I. The Circumstellar Disk of a UX Orionis Star

We present mid-infrared Spitzer IRS spectra of the UX Orionis star VV Ser, combined with interferometric and spectroscopic data from the literature covering UV to submillimeter wavelengths. The full

A reconsideration of disk properties in Herbig Ae stars

This paper presents state-of-the-art spectral energy distributions (SEDs) of four Herbig Ae stars, based in part on new data in the mid and far-infrared and at millimeter wavelengths. The SEDs are

Spatial separation of small and large grains in the transitional disk around the young star IRS 48

Aims. We present spatially resolved mid-infrared images of the disk surrounding the young star IRS 48 in the Ophiuchus cloud complex. The disk exhibits a ring-like structure at 18.7 mu m, and is

Large dust grains in the inner region of circumstellar disks

Context. Simple geometrical ring models account well for near-infrared interferometric observations of dusty disks surrounding pre-main sequence stars of intermediate mass. Such models demonstrate

Spectral Energy Distributions of T Tauri Stars with Passive Circumstellar Disks

We derive hydrostatic, radiative equilibrium models for passive disks surrounding T Tauri stars. Each disk is encased by an optically thin layer of superheated dust grains. This layer reemits

Spatially Resolved Circumstellar Structure of Herbig Ae/Be Stars in the Near-Infrared

We have conducted the first systematic study of Herbig Ae/Be stars using the technique of long baseline stellar interferometry in the near-infrared, with the objective of characterizing the


We present detailed models of irradiated T Tauri disks including dust grain growth with power-law size distributions. The models assume complete mixing between dust and gas and solve for the vertical

First Evidence of Dusty Disks around Herbig Be Stars

We have carried out a high-sensitivity search for circumstellar disks around Herbig Be stars in the continuum at 1.4 and 2.7 mm using the IRAM interferometer at the Plateau de Bure. In this Letter,

Spectrally Dispersed K-Band Interferometric Observations of Herbig Ae/Be Sources: Inner Disk Temperature Profiles

We use spectrally dispersed near-IR interferometry data to constrain the temperature profiles of sub-AU-sized regions of 11 Herbig Ae/Be sources. We find that a single-temperature ring does not

Using the Advanced Camera for Surveys aboard the Hubble Space Telescope, we have discovered dust-scattered light from the debris disk surrounding the F2 V star HD 15745. The circumstellar disk is
