Serpens Cluster B And VV SER Observed With High Spatial Resolution At 70, 160, And 350 Mu M
MetadataShow full item record
We report on diffraction-limited observations in the far-infrared (FIR) and submillimeter of the Cluster B region of Serpens (G3-G6 Cluster) and of the Herbig Be star to the south, VV Ser. The observations were made with the Spitzer/MIPS instrument in fine-scale mode at 70 mu m, in a normal mapping mode at 160 mu m (VV Ser only), and the Caltech Submillimeter Observatory (CSO) Submillimeter High Angular Resolution Camera II (SHARC-II) camera at 350 mu m (Cluster B only). We use these data to define the spectral energy distributions of the tightly grouped members of Cluster B, many of whose spectral energy distribution (SED)'s peak in the FIR. We compare our results to those of the c2d survey of Serpens and to published models for the FIR emission from VV Ser. We find that values of L(bol) and T(bol) calculated with our new photometry show only modest changes from previous values, and that most source SED classifications remain unchanged.
