Abstract

In this study, we have obtained both broad K band (2.2 μm) and narrow band (2.166 μm) images of a select sample of T Tauri stars with the new near infrared grism spectrometer and imager (GRIM) on the Astrophysical Research Consortiums’ (ARC) 1.8 meter telescope at Apache Point, New Mexico. Among our objects, we have discovered several stars to be binary (with separations ≤ 2″) and find evidence for extended K band emission for at least one of the sources.

Key words
