Mid-infrared size survey of young stellar objects: Description of Keck segment-tilting experiment and basic results

Monnier, J. D; Tuthill, Peter G; Ireland, Michael; Cohen, R; Tannirkulam, A; Perrin, Marshall, D.; Ireland, M. J


The mid-infrared properties of pre-planetary disks are sensitive to the temperature and flaring profiles of disks for the regions where planet formation is expected to occur. In order to constrain theories of planet formation, we have carried out a mid-infrared (λ = 10.7 μm) size survey of young stellar objects using the segmented Keck telescope in a novel configuration. We introduced a customized pattern of tilts to individual mirror segments to allow efficient sparse-aperture interferometry,...[Show more]
