We have conducted ALMA cycle 2 observations in the 1.3 mm continuum and in the C18O (2-1) and SO (5_6-4_5) lines at a resolution of ~0.3" toward the Class 0 protostar B335. Read More

We have observed the Class I protostar TMC-1A with Atacama Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in 12CO and C18O (J=2-1), and 1.3-mm dust continuum emission. Continuum emission with a deconvolved size of 0. Read More

We perform imaging and analyses of SMA 1.3 mm continuum, C18O (2-1) and 12CO (2-1) line data of 17 Class 0 and 0/I protostars to study their gas kinematics on a 1,000-AU scale. Continuum and C18O (2-1) emission are detected toward all the sample sources and show central primary components with sizes of ~600-1,500 AU associated with protostars. Read More

We present combined SubMillimeter Array (SMA) + Atacama Submillimeter Telescope Experiment (ASTE) images of the Class I protobinary L1551 IRS 5 in the CS ($J$ = 7--6) line, the submillimeter images of L1551 IRS 5 with the most complete spatial sampling ever achieved ($0''.9$ -- $36''$). The SMA image of L1551 IRS 5 in the 343 GHz dust-continuum emission is also presented, which shows an elongated feature along the northwest to southeast direction ($\sim$160 AU $\times$ 80 AU), perpendicular to the associated radio jets. Read More

We report Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) cycle 0 observations of C$^{18}$O ($J=2-1$), SO ($J_N= 6_5-5_4$) and 1.3mm dust continuum toward L1527 IRS, a class 0 solar-type protostar surrounded by an infalling and rotating envelope. C$^{18}$O emission shows strong redshifted absorption against the bright continuum emission associated with L1527 IRS, strongly suggesting infall motions in the C$^{18}$O envelope. Read More

We have conducted ALMA observations in the 1.3 mm continuum and 12CO (2-1), C18O (2-1) and SO (5_6-4_5) lines toward L1489 IRS, a Class I protostar surrounded by a Keplerian disk and an infalling envelope. The Keplerian disk is clearly identified in the 12CO and C18O emission, and its outer radius (~700 AU) and mass (~0. Read More

We present SMA interferometric observations of the 12CO J=2-1, 13CO (J=2-1), and C18O (J=2-1) lines and 225 GHz continuum emission and SMT single-dish observations of C18O (J=2-1) toward L43, a protostellar object in transition from Class I to II. The 225 GHz continuum emission shows a weak (~23.6 mJy), compact (<1000 AU) component associated with the central protostar. Read More

To reveal the structures of a transition disk around a young stellar object in Lupus, Sz 91, we have performed aperture synthesis 345 GHz continuum and CO(3--2) observations with the Submillimeter Array ($\sim1\arcsec$--3$\arcsec$ resolution), and high-resolution imaging of polarized intensity at the $K_s$-band by using the HiCIAO instrument on the Subaru Telescope ($0\farcs25$ resolution). Our observations successfully resolved the inner and outer radii of the dust disk to be 65 AU and 170 AU, respectively, which indicates that Sz 91 is a transition disk source with one of the largest known inner holes. The model fitting analysis of the spectral energy distribution reveals an H$_2$ mass of $2. Read More

We report ALMA observations of dust continuum, 13CO J=3--2, and C18O J=3--2 line emission toward a gapped protoplanetary disk around HD 142527. The outer horseshoe-shaped disk shows the strong azimuthal asymmetry in dust continuum with the contrast of about 30 at 336 GHz between the northern peak and the southwestern minimum. In addition, the maximum brightness temperature of 24 K at its northern area is exceptionally high at 160 AU from a star. Read More

We report interferometric observations of the VeLLO L1521F-IRS, in 12CO (2-1) line emission and the 1.3 mm continuum emission, using the Submillimeter Array (SMA). With the 12CO high-resolution observations, we have spatially resolved a compact but poorly collimated molecular outflow associated with L1521F-IRS for the first time. Read More

We performed SMA observations in the C18O (2-1) emission line toward six Class 0 and I protostars, to study rotational motions of their surrounding envelopes and circumstellar material on 100 to 1000 AU scales. C18O (2-1) emission with intensity peaks located at the protostellar positions is detected toward all the six sources. The rotational velocities of the protostellar envelopes as a function of radius were measured from the Position-Velocity diagrams perpendicular to the outflow directions passing through the protostellar positions. Read More

The circumstellar disk of AB Aurigae has garnered strong attention owing to the apparent existence of spirals at a relatively young stage and also the asymmetric disk traced in thermal dust emission. However, the physical conditions of the spirals are still not well understood. The origin of the asymmetric thermal emission is unclear. Read More

FS Tau B is one of the few T Tauri stars that possess a jet and a counterjet as well as an optically-visible cavity wall. We obtained images and spectra of its jet-cavity system in the near-infrared H and K bands using Subaru/IRCS and detected the jet and the counterjet in the [Fe II] 1.644 \mu m line for the first time. Read More

We made C18O (2-1) and CS (7-6) images of the protostellar envelope around B335 with a high spatial dynamic range from ~10000 to ~400 AU, by combining the Submillimeter Array and single-dish data. The C18O emission shows an extended (~10000 AU) structure as well as a compact (~1500 AU) component concentrated at the protostellar position. The CS emission shows a compact (~900 AU) component surrounding the protostar, plus a halo-like (~3000 AU) structure elongated along the east-west direction. Read More

We present \sim1" resolution 1.3 millimeter dust continuum and spectral line (12CO and 13CO J=2-1) observations of the transitional disk system HD 135344B obtained with the Submillimeter Array. The disk shows a Keplerian rotation pattern with an inclination of \sim11{\deg}, based on the spatially and spectrally resolved 12CO and 13CO emission. Read More

We have observed dense gas around the Very Low-Luminosity Ob jects (VeLLOs) L1521F-IRS and IRAM 04191+1522 in carbon-chain and organic molecular lines with the Nobeyama 45 m telescope. Towards L1521F-IRS, carbon-chain lines of CH3CCH (50-40), C4H (17/2-15/2), and C3H2 (212-101) are 1.5 - 3. Read More

FN Tau is a rare example of very low-mass T Tauri stars that exhibits a spatially resolved nebulosity in near-infrared scattering light. To directly derive the parameters of a circumstellar disk around FN Tau, observations of dust continuum emission at 340 GHz are carried out with the Submillimeter Array (SMA). A point-like dust continuum emission was detected with a synthesized beam of ~ 0. Read More

We have performed detailed imaging and analyses of SMA observations in 230 GHz continuum, 12CO (2-1), 13CO (2-1), and C18O (2-1) emission toward B335, a Bok globule with an embedded Class 0 source (Lbol ~ 1.5 Lsun). We report the first discover of high-velocity 12CO jets with a size of ~ 900 AU x 1500 AU along the E-W direction in B335. Read More

We present Submillimeter Array observations of the GQ Lup system at 1.3 millimeters wavelength with $0\farcs4$ ($\sim$60 AU) resolution. Emission is detected from the position of the primary star, GQ Lup A, and is marginally resolved. Read More


Studying the earliest stages in the birth of stars is crucial for understanding how they form. Brown dwarfs with masses between that of stars and planets are not massive enough to maintain stable hydrogen-burning fusion reactions during most of their lifetime. Their origins are subject to much debate in recent literature because their masses are far below the typical mass where core collapse is expected to occur. Read More

Using the ASTE 10 m submillimeter telescope and the 1.4 m Infrared Survey Facility (IRSF), we performed an extensive outflow survey in the Orion Molecular Cloud -2 and -3 region. Our survey, which includes 41 potential star-forming sites, has been newly compiled using multi-wavelength data based on millimeter- and submillimeter-continuum observations as well as radio continuum observations.

We present the results of the interferometric observations of the circumstellar disk surrounding MWC 297 in the continuum at 230 GHz (1.3 mm) and in the (J=2-1) rotational transitions of $^{12}$CO,$^{13}$CO and C$^{18}$O using the Submillimeter Array. At a distance of 250 pc, MWC 297 is one of the closest, young massive stars (M$_{\star}$ $\sim$10 M$_{\odot}$) to us. Read More

This paper presents a large spectral line and continuum survey of 8 deeply embedded, low-mass protostellar cores using the Submillimeter Array.

The circumstellar dust disk of the Herbig Ae star AB Aur has been found to exhibit complex spiral-like structures in the near-IR image obtained with the Subaru Telescope. We present maps of the disk in both 12CO (3-2) and dust continuum at 345 GHz with the SMA at an angular resolution of 1.0"x0. Read More

We have imaged the circumstellar envelope around the binary protostar L1551 IRS 5 in CS (J=7-6) and 343 GHz continuum emission at ~ 3 arcsec resolution using the Submillimeter Array. The continuum emission shows an elongated structure (~ 220 x 100 AU) around the binary perpendicular to the axis of the associated radio jet. The CS emission extends over ~ 400 AU, appears approximately circularly symmetric, and shows a velocity gradient from southeast (blueshifted) to northwest (redshifted). Read More

The molecular evolution that occurs in collapsing prestellar cores is investigated. To model the dynamics, we adopt the Larson-Penston (L-P) solution and analogues with slower rates of collapse. For the chemistry, we utilize the new standard model (NSM) with the addition of deuterium fractionation and grain-surface reactions treated via the modified rate approach. Read More

We have carried out mapping observations of the molecular core associated with the young Class 0 protostar, IRAM 04191+1522, in the CH3OH (JK=2K-1K) and C34S (J=2-1) lines using the 45 m telescope at Nobeyama Radio Observatory. As well as an elongated envelope associated with the protostellar formation (size \~0.07 pc x 0. Read More
