J/ApJ/705/1646          Debris disks in Upper Sco             (Carpenter+, 2009)

Debris disks in the upper Scorpius OB association. Carpenter J.M., Mamajek E.E., Hillenbrand L.A., Meyer M.R. <Astrophys. J., 705, 1646-1671 (2009)> =2009ApJ...705.1646C

These data are combined with published MIPS photometry for 15 additional association members to assess the frequency of circumstellar disks around 5Myr old stars with spectral types between B0 and M5. Twelve stars have a detectable 70um excess, each of which also has a detectable 24um excess. A total of 54 stars are identified with a 24um excess more than 32% above the stellar photosphere. The MIPS observations reveal 19 excess sources - 8 A/F/G stars and 11 K/M stars - that were not previously identified with an 8um or 16um excess. The lack of short-wavelength emission and the weak 24um excess suggests that these sources are debris systems or the remnants of optically thick primordial disks with inner holes. Despite the wide range of luminosities of the stars hosting apparent debris systems, the excess characteristics are consistent with all stars having dust at similar orbital radii after factoring in variations in the radiation blowout particle size with spectral type. The results for Upper Sco are compared to similar photometric surveys from the literature to re-evaluate the evolution of debris emission. Description: The selection criteria for the Upper Sco sample are described in Paper I (Carpenter et al., 2006, Cat J/ApJ/651/L49). In Paper I, IRAC (4.5um and 8um) and IRS peak-up (16um) photometry was presented for 218 of the 220 stars. We present here Spiter/MIPS 24um and 70um photometry for 205 stars observed in Upper Sco. MIPS photometry for the remaining 15 stars are listed in Carpenter et al. (2008ApJS..179..423C). File Summary:
