[20.18] High-Resolution Mid-Infrared Observations of Very Young Stellar Objects in NGC 1333

We observed 22 young stellar objects in the region of NGC~1333 using the mid-infrared camera MIRLIN. NGC~1333 (in the Perseus OB2 molecular cloud complex) is a relatively well-studied region, but not at high spatial resolution in the mid-infrared. MIRLIN's 0.5 arcsecond spatial resolution allows us to look for source extension and multiplicity, and to place new constraints on spectral energy distributions. We report here new detections of 8 objects at mid-IR wavelengths. We find one object, SVS 12, that may be extended, and we confirm multiplicity in SVS 16. We find at least 1 new companion to ASR 107. We are able to classify 6 objects as Class 0-II, place strong classification constraints on 2 objects, and more loosely restrict the classification of 8 more objects. These observations will aid in interpretation of planned SIRTF observations of this cluster.
