The frequency of binary star interlopers amongst transitional discs

Ruiz Rodriguez, Dary; Cieza, Lucas A; Kraus, A L; Ireland, Michael


Using Non-Redundant Mask interferometry (NRM), we searched for binary companions to objects previously classified as transitional discs (TD). These objects are thought to be an evolutionary stage between an optically thick disc and optically thin disc. We investigate the presence of a stellar companion as a possible mechanism of material depletion in the inner region of these discs, which would rule out an ongoing planetary formation process in distances comparable to the binary separation.
