3 Karen CollinsMaster's Thesis Defense4/24/2008 Star Formation Overview Start with molecular cloud Four phases of collapse dense rotating core forms collapses from inside out bipolar outflows carry away angular momen. (L) star and disk revealed Conservation of L cloud rotates slowly star rotates more rapidly High L material forms disk disk accretes onto star Shu et al. 1987 Wood 1997

4 Pre-Main Sequence Stars Pre-main sequence (PMS) stars fully revealed stars still gravitationally contracting toward main sequence hydrogen fusion not started yet PMS stars are called T Tauri if 0.1 M < M < 2 M (M, K, G, F type stars) Herbig Ae/Be if 2 M < M < 8 M (F, A, B type stars) higher mass stars emerge from cloud on main sequence Observable characteristics Balmer emission lines in stellar spectrum (Hα, Hβ, Hγ, …) transition (3 2, 4 2, 5 2, …) infrared excess due to circumstellar dust (next slides) Karen CollinsMaster's Thesis Defense4/24/2008

5 Spectral Energy Distribution Spectral Energy Distribution (SED) plot of radiated energy vs. wavelength Stellar photosphere ~blackbody peaks in optical Sun 5778 K A-type stars 7500-10,000 K M-type stars 3000-4000 K

6 Infrared Excess IR excess total emission stellar contribution stellar contribution determined from a model fit to UV and Optical data source is circumstellar dust dust absorbs stellar radiation re-radiates as thermal emission IR excess source inner disk NIR (1 - 7 μm) outer disk MID to FIR (10 - 50 μm) disk midplane FIR to mm (>50 μm) Karen CollinsMaster's Thesis Defense4/24/2008 adapted from M.Sitko simulation

7 Disk Evolution Protoplanetary Disks (initial phase) gas rich + small dust grains (submicron) gas:dust ~100:1 (as in interstellar medium (ISM)) high accretion rates (> ~1 10 8 M yr 1 ) gas and dust well mixed hydrostatic equilibrium dust material supported above midplane disk can maintain scale height disk expected to flare Karen CollinsMaster's Thesis Defense4/24/2008

8 Flared Disk "bowl" shaped disk h r, where > 1.0 relatively flat SED in IR inner rim NIR BB disk surface MIR - FIR disk midplane FIR - mm Karen CollinsMaster's Thesis Defense4/24/2008 Dullemond et al. 2006

9 Disk Vertical Structure inner-most part of the disk is dust free beyond sublimation temperature the inner rim is illuminated face-on from the star, the gas heats up more and causes an increased scale height (i.e. it "puffs up") as the disk ages, the dust grains grow in size disk becomes vertically stratified larger grains in midplane smaller grains in upper layers Karen CollinsMaster's Thesis Defense4/24/2008 Dullemond et al. 2006

10 Disk Evolution Continued Transitional Disks (intermediate phase) accretion rates ~10 - 100x lower than protoplanetary disks IR excess similar to pp disk at >10 μm IR excess significantly less at <10 μm result of less dust, or optically thin dust, in the inner disk photoevaporation grain growth until optically thin gap creation by massive planet Karen CollinsMaster's Thesis Defense4/24/2008

11 Disk Evolution Continued Debris Disks (final phase) accretion has stopped moderate IR excess at >10 μm very little to no IR excess at <10 μm no inner disk at all primordial dust has grown to rocks, protoplanets, and terrestrial planets remaining dust is second generation from collisions of massive bodies gas-poor Karen CollinsMaster's Thesis Defense4/24/2008 Van den Ancker 1999

12 Meeus Groups Meeus et al. (2001) divided 14 Herbig stars into two groups Group I blackbody in MIR high fraction of IR excess (L IR /L * ~ 0.5) steep submm slope (i.e. small grains) Group II no blackbody in MIR low fraction of IR excess (L IR /L * ~ 0.2) shallow submm slope (i.e. larger grains) Meeus et al. suggested Group I sources evolve to Group II sources Karen CollinsMaster's Thesis Defense4/24/2008

13 Meeus Physical Model 3 components disk midplane - optically thick inner disk with scale height outer disk Group I inner disk optically thin outer disk is directly illuminated outer disk heats & flares creates MIR BB Group II inner disk optically thick outer disk shielded outer disk stays flat no MIR BB Karen CollinsMaster's Thesis Defense4/24/2008

14 Thesis Goal Test idea that Meeus Group I sources evolve to Meeus Group II sources at time of Meeus et al. (2001) paper, many age estimates were not available accretion rates were not considered (recall that accretion rate is tied to disk evolution) Karen CollinsMaster's Thesis Defense4/24/2008

15 Thesis Approach Compare ages and accretion rates between the groups we focus on HD 100453 in this work because: Herbig AeBe stars are difficult to date after about 5 Myr low-mass stars are easier to date and often form together with A-stars we can determine the age of the A-star from a companion low-mass star a candidate low-mass companion was recently reported for HD 100453A (Chen et al. 2006) determine age and accretion rate for HD 100453A (this work) determine age and accretion rate for other stars from the literature Karen CollinsMaster's Thesis Defense4/24/2008

16 HD 100453A Karen CollinsMaster's Thesis Defense4/24/2008 Southern Hemisphere (Lower Centaurus-Crux Assn) Distance 114 pc v=7.78 (not visible by naked eye) Spectral Type A9Ve Age > ~10 Myr

18 Test of Companion Status To date an A-star from a low-mass companion, we need to know that they are physical companions Two tests: determine motion of A-star & candidate companion If motion through space is common, they are likely physical companions determine spectral type of companion for the brightness contrast between the two stars, a physical companion would be a low-mass star Karen CollinsMaster's Thesis Defense4/24/2008

41 Gas and Dust in Inner Disk Karen CollinsMaster's Thesis Defense4/24/2008 (after Brittain et al. 2007)

42 Gas and Dust in Outer Disk Karen CollinsMaster's Thesis Defense4/24/2008

43 Where Does It Belong? 14 ± 4 Myr transitional disk character High NIR excess protoplanetary disk character Low accretion rate transitional or debris disk character Gas-poor disk debris disk character High total IR excess flared disk? requires gas? HD 100453A does not fit in any classically defined disk group (protoplanetary, transitional, debris) Karen CollinsMaster's Thesis Defense4/24/2008

44 Thesis Results Karen CollinsMaster's Thesis Defense4/24/2008 Recall we set out to test idea that Meeus Group I sources evolve to Group II... by comparing ages & accretion between the groups determine for HD 100453 collect new and updated data from literature

45 Thesis Results Karen CollinsMaster's Thesis Defense4/24/2008 Group I sources are slightly older than Group II on average (but are within 1σ) Group I accretion rates are slightly lower than Group II accretion rates on average (but are within 1σ)

46 Thesis Results Age range significantly overlaps between the two groups Accretion slows as star ages in both groups Meeus suggested star and disk evolution may be decoupled for this sample We find that the star, accretion rate, and disk evolve together. We conclude that the hypothesis suggesting Meeus Group I sources evolve to Meeus Group II sources does not hold. Karen CollinsMaster's Thesis Defense4/24/2008

47 Possible Physical Explanation HD 100546 example (Group I) cavity confirmed by interferometry & STIS (Lui et al. 2003) (Grady et al. 2005) inner rim of inner and outer disk creates NIR and MIR blackbody components in SED and high L excess /L * possible giant planet in gap is causing collisional cascade collisions produce small dust grains radiation pressure blows the grains onto surface of cold outer disk small grains cause steep submm slope Meeus groups may be more representative of differences in disk structure rather than differences in disk evolution. Karen CollinsMaster's Thesis Defense4/24/2008 after Bouwman et al. 2003)

48 Future Directions To lift disk structure degeneracy allowed by SED need high contrast, high spatial resolution imaging high spatial resolution interferometry We can do this with existing instrumentation NICMOS on HST ( coron. imaging, 0.075 pixel 1, 0".3 hole) My collaborators have submitted a proposal (March 2008) for NICMOS observations of several T Tauri and Herbig Ae/Be stars, including HD 100453. Near-term prospects HST SM4 (8/2008) set to repair other key instruments ACS (down since June 2006) coron. imaging mode, 0.025 pixel 1, 0".9 radius spot STIS (down since 2004) coron. imaging mode, 0.05 pixel 1, 0".5-2.8" wedges Karen CollinsMaster's Thesis Defense4/24/2008 HD 141569 (from Krist 2004)

49 Long -Term Prospects Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) 0.3 - 9.6 mm (cold dust and gas) 0".01 resolution, no occulter needed 64 x 12-meter antennas completion expected in 2012 Simulation 0.5 M star 1 M J planet 5 AU orbit M disk = 10 M J Karen CollinsMaster's Thesis Defense4/24/2008 Wolf & D'Angelo 2005
