Tiny grains shining bright in the gaps of Herbig Ae transitional discs
This work presents a study of two Herbig Ae transitional discs, Oph IRS 48 and HD 169142; which both have reported rings in their dust density distributions. We use Keck-II/NIRC2 adaptive optics imaging observations in the L′ filter (3.8 μm) to probe the regions of these discs inwards of ∼20au from the star. We introduce our method for investigating these transitional discs, which takes a forward modelling approach: making a model of the disc (using the Monte Carlo radiative transfer code...[Show more]
