Probing Sub-AU Radii of Young Circumstellar Disks
Using data from the Keck and Palomar Testbed Interferometers, we probe
sub AU regions of protoplanetary disks around a sample of T Tauri and
Herbig Ae/Be stars. We determine the dust and gas distributions in
these regions, with implications for terrestrial planet formation as
well as potential mechanisms for halting giant planet formation.
