" mm and submm interferometric observations of protoplanetary disks "
Protoplanetary disks, which are formed as by-products of star formation,
are the most probable site of planet formation. In fact, more exoplanets
have been discovered, urging us toward detailed studies of protoplanetary
disks. Because these disks are very compact with a typical size of 100 AU,
high angular resolution observations, such as those using mm and submm
interferometers are the key to study them in detail.
In my talk, I will present recent observations of protoplanetary disks around
protostars as well as pre-main-sequence stars.
Seminars are also held at JAC,
