Context. The nearby young stellar associationǫ Cha has an estimated age of 3‐5 Myr, making it an ideal laboratory to study the disk dissipation process and provide empirical constraints on t he timescale of planet formation. Aims. We wish to complement existing optical and near-infrared data of theǫ Cha association, which provide the stellar properties of its members, with mid-infrared data that probe the presence, geometry, and mineralogical composition of protoplanetary disks around… 
Herschel-PACS observations of discs in the η Chamaeleontis association
Context. Protoplanetary discs are the birthplace of planets. Studying protoplanetary discs is the key to constraining theories of planet formation. By observing dust and gas in associations at
Young Stellar Objects in Lynds 1641: Disks, Accretion, and Star Formation History
We investigate the young stellar objects (YSOs) in the Lynds 1641 (L1641) cloud using multi-wavelength data including Spitzer, WISE, the Two Micron All Sky Survey, and XMM covering similar to 1390
X-shooter spectroscopy of young stars with disks
We investigate ongoing accretion activity in young stars in the TW Hydrae association (TWA, ~8-10 Myr), an ideal target to probe the final stages of disk accretion down to brown dwarf masses. Our
Gaia-based Isochronal, Kinematic, and Spatial Analysis of the ϵ Cha Association
The precise parallax, proper motion, and photometric measurements contained in Gaia Data Release 2 (DR2) offer the opportunity to reexamine the membership and ages of nearby young moving groups
A CO Survey In Planet-Forming Disks: Characterizing The Gas Content In The Epoch Of Planet Formation
We carried out a 12CO(3-2) survey of 52 southern stars with a wide range of IR excesses (L IR/L *) using the single-dish telescopes APEX and ASTE. The main aims were (1) to characterize the evolution
Herbig Ae/Be candidate stars in the innermost Galactic disk: Quartet cluster
In order to investigate the Galactic-scale environmental effects on the evolution of protoplanetary disks, we explored the near-infrared (NIR) disk fraction of the Quartet cluster, which is a young
New members of the TW Hydrae Association and two accreting M-dwarfs in Scorpius-Centaurus
We report the serendipitous discovery of several young mid-M stars found during a search for new members of the 30-40 Myr-old Octans Association. Only one of the stars may be considered a possible
GW Orionis: Inner disk readjustments in a triple system
Context. Disks are expected to dissipate quickly in binary or multiple systems. Investigating such systems can improve our knowledge of the disk dispersal. The triple system GW Ori, still harboring a
Empirical Isochrones for Low Mass Stars in Nearby Young Associations
Absolute ages of young stars are important for many issues in pre-main sequence stellar and circumstellar evolution but are long recognized as difficult to derive and calibrate. In this paper, we use
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

C2D Spitzer-IRS spectra of disks around T Tauri stars - V. Spectral decomposition
Context. Dust particles evolve in size and lattice structure in protoplanetary disks, due to coagulation, fragmentation and crystallization, and are radially and vertically mixed in disks due to
Binarity as a key factor in protoplanetary disk evolution : Spitzer disk census of the η chamaeleontis cluster
The formation of planets is directly linked to the evolution of the circumstellar (CS) disk from which they are born. The dissipation timescales of CS disks are therefore of direct astrophysical
