(1998) Stolovy, S; Young, E; Thompson, Roger; Rieke, M; Schneider, G; Burton, Michael; Erickson, E; Kaufman, Michael; Colgan, Sean; Chrysostomou, A; Axon, DConference PaperThe core of OMC--1 has been imaged with NICMOS on the Hubble Space Telescope at 0.2'' resolution in 1% filters at 2.12 and 2.15mu m, revealing intricate structures in both continuum and shocked molecular hydrogen line emission. Numerous H_2-emitting clumps surrounding the BN/KL region have been resolved for the first time, several of which exhibit prototypical bow-shock morphologies with V-shaped tips. We interpret these to be lower-excitation analogs of similar structures ~ 2' NW of the core observed with ground based telescopes. Many of the elongated H_2 structures and bow-shock features appear to radiate outward from a region within a few arcseconds of radio source 'I', suggesting that the H_2 energetics are dominated by one or more outflow sources in this region. However, the orientations of some features are unrelated to this apparent outflow pattern. The deeply embedded, suspected outflow source `I' remain s undetected at 2 mu m, although two faint new continuum sources have be en detected within ~ 1'' of it. The newly resolved H_2 features with bow-shock morphologies are located in regions previously identified as bow-shocks by highly blueshifted components in their line profiles. Several continuum features have an arc-like appearance, suggesting interactions of winds with the ambient medium. At least 40 stellar or protostellar continuum sources have been detected, including at least one proplyd and four pairs of binary stars.
(2006) Maddison, Sarah; Lommen, D; Wright, Christopher; Bourke, Tyler; Jorgensen, J; Van Dishoeck, E; Burton, Michael; Hughes, A; Wilner, DConference PaperIn order to understand planet formation, we need to probe the physical conditions of protoplanetary disks to see when and where grains begin to grow in size. Over the past four years we have been conducting a 3mm continuum survey with the Australia Telescope Compact Array of disks around young stars (both T Tauri and Herbig Ae/B stars) in southern molecular clouds to investigate the evolution of protoplanetary disks and grain growth within these disks. The goals of our project are to obtain fluxes and hence determine the millimetre spectral energy indices, which provides information about the grain size distribution. We present results from our successful 2005 millimetre season, in which we observed 15 southern T Tauri sources (10 in Chamaeleon and 5 in Lupus). The opacity indices suggest the presence of mm-sized dust aggregates and hence substantial grain growth in the majority of these disks. We also present preliminary results from our follow-up 2006 observations of three sources (HD100546, WW Cha and RU Lup) are centimetre wavelengths and discuss the possibility of detecting pebble-sized "grains" in these disks.
