Prime IR Excess Table

******************************* Note: This table contains all of the IR excess candidates from literature and WISE catalogs that passed our criteria described in Cotten & Song 2016. The `Prime' stars were selected by the following restrictions: 1) within 120 pc 2) IR excess at multiple photometric passbands or one photometric passband with IRS spectra confirmation 3) sufficiently bright WISE W3 and W4 data (ideal for follow-up missions) The Name column contains a hyperlink to the SIMBAD reference page for that star. The TYC ID column lists the Tycho-2 ID, if available. The R.A. and Dec columns list the position of the target in J2000 epoch. The pmRA and pmDec columns list the proper motion of the target as given by the Tycho-2 catalog. The VTmag column lists the visual magnitude from the Tycho-2 catalog. The SOE W3 and SOE W4 columns are the significance of excess in WISE W3 and W4. The significance of excess is defined by: SOE The Num_Excess column shows the number of photometric passbands that display significant excess. The Start Wave column approximates the wavelength of starting IR excess. The Has IRS? column displays whether or not there is available Spitzer IRS spectroscopy to confirm the photometric IR excess. The Known Ref column is specifically designed to flag those stars that have already been studied/qualified for having infrared excess or for the possibility of being debris disks. The text displays one of the original references to IR excess if the excess is known. The Teff, Tdust, Rdisk, Tdust2, Rdisk2 columns display the parameters of our simple 2 component blackbody dust model fits to the disk. If the Tdust2 and Rdisk2 columns are blank, then a single blackbody model was used. Teff is the temperature returned by the best fit model to the stellar photosphere. The units of the temperatures are in Kelvins and the units of the disk radii are given in AU. The LIR/L* column also referred to as `Tau' in many references is the fractional dust luminosity. The Dist. column shows the distance for these stars in pc. The Dist Ref column shows where the distance measurement is from. The values are either trigonometric parallax from the HIP catalog or calculated using the SED and mulitple photometric points. The WISE column contains a hyperlink to the WISE image service to display the target in a similar fashion to the images used in our image analysis procedures.
