Motivation

?

Protoplanetary disk in Orion

Debris disk


The basic model

- disk masses: 10-4 - 0.01 M Sun

- elemental abundances:

molecular cloud abundances

- optical properties of dust grains:

single 'mean' grain size

- dust temperature:

radiative equilibrium

- gas-to-dust mass ratio:

variable

- UV radiation fields:

interstellar radiation field,

photospheric radiation field,

photosphere+chromosphere

The chemical structure

Interface disk-remnant gas

t= 1 layer

H2 is chemically

destroyed by O in

the hot regions

H2 + O  OH + H

OH + n  O + H

500 K

2000 K


The chemical structure

Interface disk-remnant gas

t= 1 layer

  • warm H2 present in disk surface

    layers (thermally excited,

    Tex~ few 100 K)

  • warm surface contains

    observable molecules such as

    e.g. CO, CH, OH


The gas temperature

500 K

50 K

2000 K

100 K

Gas and dust couple well above

the superheated surface layer

of the disk


The gas temperature

Gas and dust couple well above

the superheated surface layer

of the disk


Evaporation of the surface

- Gas densities are high enough to couple H to the remaining species

- Disk surface evaporates inside of ~50 AU  verify with fully self-consistent

disk models


Outlook: Disk structure models

- self-consistent stationary disk models

- comparison with observations by scanning through the disk with

e.g. VISIR, IRAM, ALMA in the NIR to submm  feedback for the models

Outlook: Disk structure models

- self-consistent stationary disk models

- comparison with observations by scanning through the disk with

e.g. VISIR, IRAM, ALMA in the NIR to submm  feedback for the models

- evaporation of the inner disk as a function of spectral-type of central star

(include X-rays)

- compile heating/cooling tables for hydrodynamical modeling
