Planet Formation Topic: Disk thermal structure Lecture by: C.P. Dullemond

2
Spectral Energy Distributions (SEDs) Plotting normal flux makes it look as if the source emits much more infrared radiation than optical radiation: This is because energy is:

3
Spectral Energy Distributions (SEDs) Typically one can say: and one takes a constant (independent of ). In that case is the relevant quantity to denote energy per interval in log. NOTE:

4
Calculating the SED from a flat disk Assume here for simplicity that disk is vertically isothermal: the disk emits therefore locally as a black radiator. Now take an annulus of radius r and width dr. On the sky of the observer it covers: and flux is: Total flux observed is then:

5
Multi-color blackbody disk SED Wien region multi-color region Rayleigh- Jeans region F

6
F 3 (4q-2)/q Multi-color blackbody disk SED Rayleigh-Jeans region: Slope is as Planck function: Multi-color region: Suppose that temperature profile of disk is: Emitting surface: Peak energy planck: Location of peak planck:

7
(4q-2)/q F 3+ Disk with finite optical depth If disk is not very optically thick, then: Multi-color part stays roughly the same, because of energy conservation Rayleigh-Jeans part modified by slope of opacity. Suppose that this slope is: Then the observed intensity and flux become:

8
AB Aurigae SED of accretion disk Remember: According to our derived SED rule (4q-2)/q=4/3 we obtain: Does this fit SEDs of Herbig Ae/Be stars? HD104237 Bad fit Higher than observed from veiling (see later)

Viscous heating or irradiation? T Tauri star

10
Viscous heating or irradiation? Herbig Ae star

11
Flat irradiated disks Irradiation flux: Cooling flux: Similar to active accretion disk, but flux is fixed. Similar problem with at least a large fraction of HAe and T Tauri star SEDs.

12
Flared disks flaring irradiation heating vs cooling vertical structure Kenyon & Hartmann 1987 Calvet et al. 1991; Malbet & Bertout 1991 Bell et al. 1997; D'Alessio et al. 1998, 1999 Chiang & Goldreich 1997, 1999; Lachaume et al. 2003

13
Flared disks: Chiang & Goldreich model The flaring angle: Irradiation flux: Cooling flux: Express surface height in terms of pressure scale height:

14
Flared disks: Chiang & Goldreich model Remember formula for pressure scale height: We obtain

15
Flared disks: Chiang & Goldreich model We therefore have: with Flaring geometry: Remark: in general is not a constant (it decreases with r). The flaring is typically <9/7

16
The surface layer A dust grain in (above) the surface of the disk sees the direct stellar light. Is therefore much hotter than the interior of the disk.

17
Intermezzo: temperature of a dust grain Heating: a = radius of grain = absorption efficiency (=1 for perfect black sphere) Cooling: Thermal balance: Optically thin case:

18
Intermezzo: temperature of a dust grain Big grains, i.e. grey opacity: Small grains: high opacity at short wavelength, where they absorb radiation, low opacity at long wavelength where they cool.

19
The surface layer again... Disk therefore has a hot surface layer which absorbs all stellar radiation. Half of it is re-emitted upward (and escapes); half of it is re- emitted downward (and heats the interior of the disk).

20
Chiang & Goldreich: two layer model Chiang & Goldreich (1997) ApJ 490, 368 Model has two components: Surface layer Interior

21
Flared disks: detailed models Global disk model...... consists of vertical slices, each forming a 1D problem. All slices are independent from each other.
