J/ApJ/636/932        Mid-infrared survey of T Tauri stars        (McCabe+, 2006)

Investigating disk evolution: a high spatial resolution mid-infrared survey of T Tauri stars. McCabe C., Ghez A.M., Prato L., Duchene G., Fisher R.S., Telesco C. <Astrophys. J., 636, 932-951 (2006)> =2006ApJ...636..932M
ADC_Keywords: Stars, double and multiple ; Stars, pre-main sequence ; Photometry, infrared Keywords: binaries: close - circumstellar matter - planetary systems: protoplanetary disks - stars: pre-main-sequence Abstract: We present a high spatial resolution, 10-20µm survey of 65 T Tauri binary stars in Taurus, Ophiuchus, and Corona Australis using the Keck 10m telescopes. Designed to probe the inner ∼1AU region of the circumstellar disks around the individual stellar components in these binary systems, this study increases the number of binaries with spatially resolved measurements at 10µm by a factor of ∼5. Description: High angular resolution mid-infrared observations were made at the Keck 10m telescopes using two instruments: OSCIR, a visiting mid-infrared (8-25µm) camera, and the Long Wavelength Spectrometer (LWS), the facility mid-infrared imaging spectrograph.

Note (1): Note on Name, defined as follows: e = A third object, situated 11.1" from NTTS155203-2338A at a position angle of 164.4°, was observed at K band (12.2±0.2mag) and L band (11.57±0.01mag). Given the preponderance of objects within 1' of NTTS 155203-2338, this is likely to be a background object but has not been confirmed. f = A third object, located 16.5" away from DoAr 26 A at a position angle of 49.3°, was also detected, with K=11.6±0.2mag and L=11.6±0.8mag. It is not known whether this object is physically associated with DoAr 26 or not. Note (2): The filters used here are defined as follows: 12.5 = OCLI-S band (12.5µm ; F(Vega)=24.96Jy) 8.8 = OCLI-O band (8.8µm ; F(Vega)=49.26Jy) IHW18 = IHW band (18.1µm ; F(Vega)=11.96Jy) N = N band (10.8µm ; F(Vega)=33.99Jy) K = K band (2.2µm) L = L band (3.5µm) SiC = SiC band (11.8µm ; Vega flux = 24.96Jy) See Appendix B for details on the absolute photometric calibration. Note (3): Represents the magnitude of both primary and secondary combined, unless the value is starred. In this case, the observations reveal one point source and it is not clear which component the flux belongs to. Note (4): Flag on magT, defined as follows: c = Chopping errors provide unresolved flux only. d = Secondary marginally resolved in IRTF L-band observations causing large uncertainties in fluxes from PSF fitting. Used L-band results from White & Ghez (2001ApJ...556..265W) for final sample.

Note (1): A "d" indicates that ROX 15 flickers in accretion; Prato et al. (2003ApJ...584..853P) see no Brγ in either component, whereas Greene & Meyer (1995ApJ...450..233G) and Luhman & Rieke (1999ApJ...525..440L) do see Brγ in resolved system. Went with C/C because system seen to be accreting at least on some occasions. Note (2): Measured from photometry for combined system. Note (3): A "]" indicates an assumed extinction of 0.0mag in cases where J-H and H-K colors fall below the CTTS (Classical T Tau star) locus. Note (4): Note that the reference numbers differ from the printed version. Note (5): A "c" indicates that Hartigan & Kenyon (2003ApJ...583..334H) find an EWHa=23±4Å, on the border between CTTS/WTTS (classical/weak). Based on this, the lack of veiling and [OI] emission, and NIR excess, they define it to be a WTTS. We use their classification here.
