  1. Poster #63.18 Formation and Evolution of Planetary Systems (FEPS): Primordial Warm Dust Evolution From 3-30 Myr Around Sun-like Stars Excesses FEPS Photospheres Figure 2.The fraction of disk sources as a function of stellar age. The red and blue circles represent the fraction of IR excess sources based on the IRAC observations for the two youngest age bins in the FEPS sample, as reported in Table 1. These points represent the same statistic at 3.6, 4.5, and 8.0m. The other filled circles and curves show as a comparison the data from ground based observations at N-band (Mamajek et al. 2004) and L-band (Haisch et al. 2001). Work in Progress … Figure 3.The Spectral Energy Distributions for the five targets with IRAC excesses, with Kurucz model photospheres(blue lines) fit to optical and near-IR photometry from the literature, including Hipparcos and 2MASS databases, (black circles). Infrared fluxes from the IRAS catalogs are plotted (X's). FEPS observations include IRAC channels 1, 2, and 4 (green boxes), IRS low-resolution spectra (red lines) and MIPS 24 and 70mm (green diamonds). ISO 60 and 100mm fluxes from Spangler et al. (2001) are plotted for RX J1111.7-7600 (blue circles). Millimeter fluxes (Carpenter et al. 2005) are plotted (green circles) at the far right of the diagrams. The long wavelength measurements of RX J1111.7-7600 suffer from source confusion with XX Cha, a CTTS ~25" away. Figure 4.Normalized, continuum-subtracted IRS low-resolution spectra of T-Tauri systems observed in the FEPS legacy program. The spectra between 7–14m show the crystalline silicate bands after the removal of the amorphous silicate emission, as do the 15–35m spectra after continuum removal. The positions of the main emission features of various dust species are indicated. The crystalline silicate forsterite bands are clearly detected through the spectra. Silica, enstatite and PAH molecules are evident to varying degrees. These analyses are being developed for an upcoming submission (Bouwman et al. 2006).

Thus the true uncertainties may be larger.

Padgett (Spitzer Science Center) FEPS is a survey of 328 Sun-like (0.7 < M*/M < 1.5) with all three Spitzer science instruments to characterize the incidence and evolution of dusty disks. • Overall FEPS Goals • Characterize transition fromprimordial to debrisdisks • Constrain timescale ofgas disk dissipation • Examine thediversity of planetary systems • Is our Solar System common or rare? • Please see the other FEPS contributions at this meeting: • Backman et al. talk #95.03 & Poster #63.32 Stauffer et al. #63.11, • Hillenbrand et al. #63.28, Mamajek et al. #63.48. • Goals of THIS study • Characterizing warm dust in Sun-like systems • Are warm inner disks common among young Sun-like stars? (no) • At what age do inner disks dissipate? (30 Myr) • Does the age of inner disk dissipation vary with Near- to Mid-IR wavelength of the disk detection? (no) • These results are detailed in a paper accepted for publication in the ApJ (Silverstone et al. 2005). • Discussion • We present a color-color diagram showing the IRAC photometry for the 74 targets in this survey in Figure 1. • The IRAC observations (3.6-8.0mm) are generally sensitive to dust in orbit from 0.1 to 1 AU. • We detect 5 systems withstrongexcess (SNR ≥ 5-19) in all IRAC bands (see Figure 3), and 69 stars with no apparent excess. The clear separation in color of the excess and non-excess sources, and the unexpected absence of intermediate excesses (which could have been detected at moderate SNR≥3) implies a rapid evolution from optically-thick to optically-thin disks compared to the age of the systems in this survey (3-30 Myr;). Four of the 5 excess systems, have ages from 3–10 Myr (RX J1111.7, [PZ99] J161411, RX J1842.9, and RX J1852.3), and one is older, between 10–30 Myr (PDS 66). • Upper limits to excess for the 69 detected photospheres suggests there is less than ~410–7 M of optically thin dust in “small” grains in these systems. • Figure 2 shows a summary and comparison of the detection rates of excess vs. age for similar surveys (Mamajek et al. 2004, Haisch et al. 2001). Our survey (see also Table 1) is consistent with ground-based surveys at L- and N-band (sensitive to dust closer and farther from the host star, respectively), as well as IRAC non-detections of excesses in the 30 Myr cluster NGC 2547 (Young et al. 2004). Inner (r < 1AU) dust disks become optically thin by 30 Myr. •  In Figure 3 we present the observed SEDs of the five IRAC excess sources combining the FEPS Spitzer data with ground & space-based observations in the literature. •  In Figure 4 we show mineralogical features (work in progress) in the IRS Low-resolution spectra from these 5 excess sources and 2 other T-Tauri stars observed in the FEPS program. The continuum- and amorphous silicate-removed spectra are rich with features from crystalline grains and PAHs (Bouwman et al. 2006). • The lack of optically thin dust in 69 targets from 3-30 Myr suggests that these targets have dust generation rates lower than that we think our solar system may have had at similar ages. This suggests that systems with histories similar to our solar system are rare in our galaxy. • Additional Information: For more details about this study and the FEPS project please see the paper on these data (Silverstone et al. 2005), other FEPS contributions at this meeting (Backman et al. talk #95.03 & Poster #63.32 Stauffer et al. #63.11, Hillenbrand et al. Poster #63.28, Mamajek et al. Poster #63.48), and the FEPS website Figure 1. The 2MASS Ks–IRAC [3.6mm], [4.5mm]–[8.0mm] color-color diagram for the 74 young targets. Five targets with strong excesses from optically thick disks detected at high SNRs appear above and to the right of the cluster of 69 targets with no apparent excess. The typical uncertainty is plotted below the legend. Surprisingly, the significant gap between photospheric colors and the disks detected show that no systems were observed with excesses at marginal SNRs. • FEPS Young Target Sample • FEPS targets observed with Spitzer/Infrared Array Camera (IRAC) before October 5, 2004. • Youngest targets in the FEPS sample • Ages have been determined from a variety of methods, detailed in Hillenbrand et al. 2005. These methods include: • • Moving-group kinematics • • Li I (l 6707Å) equivalent width • • X-ray luminosity • • H-R diagram location and isochrone fitting • Uncertainties in age determinations are estimated to be a factor of ≤ 2. • 74targets in age range:3 Myr – 30 Myr • Targets divided into two logarithmic age bins, spaced wider than the uncertainties in the age determinations: • 29targets with age3 – 10 Myr • 45targets with age10 – 30 Myr • IRAC Observations and Photometry • Targets were observed with the IRAC 3.6, 4.5, and 8.0mm channels in the 32x32-pixel subarray mode, using the 4-point random dither pattern. The subarray mode produces 64 images at each dither position in each channel. • Integration times were selected to detect photospheres at SNR > 50. Most targets were observed with Frame Time = 0.1 second • Aperture photometry was calculated from each subarray image using IDP3 (Schneider & Stobie, 2002) using target radius = 3 pixels and background annulus from 10 to 32 pixel radius (thus most subarray pixels outside the radius of 10 pixels were included in the background “annulus”). • The background was estimated by the median flux per pixel from the background annulus, scaled to the size of the target aperture, then subtracted. • Aperture correction was taken from the IRAC Data Handbook v. 1.0 Table 5.7, for radius on source 3.0 pixels, and background annuli of 10 to 20 pixels. • Target flux was taken as the mean of the 256 photometry measures (64 images per dither x 4 dithers). • Uncertainty was estimated by the combined internal uncertainty (estimated by the standard deviation of the 256 measures and the calibration uncertainty as published by the SSC, 10% for all IRAC bands at the time of these analyses) added in quadrature. • InFigure 1we present the colors from IRAC photometry, and the full SEDs for 5 targets are presented inFigure 3. • More details for the data reduction steps (including the IRS and MIPS data presented inFigure 3) are available in the FEPS Legacy Data Release 2.0* • * References Carpenter, J.M., Wolf, S., Schreyer, K., Launhardt, R., & Henning, T. 2005, AJ, 129, 1049 Bouwman et al. 2006, in preparation Gehrels, N. 1986, ApJ 303, 336 Haisch, K.E., Jr., Lada, E.A., & Lada, C.L., 2001, ApJL 553, 153 Mamajek, E.E., Meyer M.R., Hinz P.M., Hoffmann W.F., Cohen M., Hora J.L. 2004, ApJ, 612, 496 Mamajek, E.E., Meyer M.R., Liebert J. 2002, AJ, 124, 1670 Meyer M.R., et al. 2004, ApJS, 154, 422 Preibisch, T. & Zinnecker, H. 1999, AJ 117, 2381 Schneider, G., & Stobie, E. 2002, in ASP Conf.
