ADC_Keywords: Stars, dwarfs ; Stars, A-type ; Photometry, infrared Keywords: circumstellar matter - infrared: stars - planetary systems: formation Abstract: We report 24 and/or 70um measurements of ∼160 A-type main-sequence stars using the Multiband Imaging Photometer for Spitzer (MIPS). Description: The majority (128) of the stars in this study are from the Spitzer Guaranteed Time Observation (GTO) programs (ASTAR, FAB4, and DIRTY12), for which most were selected because they had known ages based on cluster membership or association with moving groups. An additional 32 stars are included from the Spitzer calibration observations. In total, our sample includes 160 stars ranging in spectral type from B6 to A7, but mostly (∼85%) from B9 to A7.

Note (2): Age is set to 0 for the young stars that are below the ZAMS on the Herzsprung-Russel diagram Note (4): Ratio of measured flux density to expected photospheric flux density. Note (5): IR excess is classified using the 3-σ criteria excess higher than 1.06 at 24um and 1.55 at 70um: YES = having an infrared excess NO = being detected but with no excess above the 3σ confidence level UPL = having only an upper limit.
