We present optical and IR spectra of a set of low-mass stars and brown dwarfs in the Coronet cluster (aged ~1 Myr), obtained with the multifiber spectrograph FLAMES on the VLT and with the IRS instrument on Spitzer. Most of the objects had been selected via their X-ray emission in a deep Chandra survey. The optical spectra reveal spectral types between M1 and M7.5, confirm the youth of the objects (via Li λ6708 absorption), and show the presence of accretion (via Hα) and shocks (via forbidden… 

Infrared Spectra of Young Stars Embedded in the R Coronae Australis Cloud

Infrared spectra are presented for a magnitude-limited (K < 12.5 mag) sample of stellar objects observed toward the R Coronae Australis molecular core. These spectra, which are used to identify young

THE NATURE OF TRANSITION CIRCUMSTELLAR DISKS. II. SOUTHERN MOLECULAR CLOUDS

Transition disk objects are pre-main-sequence stars with little or no near-IR excess and significant far-IR excess, implying inner opacity holes in their disks. Here we present a multifrequency study

Protostars, multiplicity, and disk evolution in the Corona Australis region: a Herschel Gould Belt Study

Context. The CrA region and the Coronet cluster form a nearby (138 pc), young (1−2 Myr) star-forming region that hosts a moderate population of Class I, II, and III objects.Aims. We study the

STRUCTURE AND COMPOSITION OF TWO TRANSITIONAL CIRCUMSTELLAR DISKS IN CORONA AUSTRALIS

The late stages of evolution of the primordial circumstellar disks surrounding young stars are poorly understood, yet vital to constraining theories of planet formation. We consider basic structural

The (w)hole survey: An unbiased sample study of transition disk candidates based on Spitzer catalogs

Understanding disk evolution and dissipation is essential for studies of planet formation. Transition disks, i.e., disks with large dust cavities and gaps, are promising candidates of active

MBM 12: young protoplanetary discs at high galactic latitude

We present Spitzer infrared observations to constrain disc and dust evolution in young T Tauri stars in MBM 12, a star-forming cloud at high latitude with an age of 2 Myr and a distance of 275 pc.

DISK EVOLUTION IN OB ASSOCIATIONS: DEEP SPITZER/IRAC OBSERVATIONS OF IC 1795

We present a deep Spitzer/Infrared Array Camera (IRAC) survey of the OB association IC 1795 carried out to investigate the evolution of protoplanetary disks in regions of massive star formation.
